The Washington Township Historical Society’s annual historic house tour will be back in action this year for the 29th tour, showcasing six properties in the area on Dec. 8, the group announced.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. that Saturday, attendees can learn more about the George S. Dufford home in Middle Valley–a saltbox style home built by John Hendershot in 1747. Also in Middle Valley will be a tour of the Scott Farm on West Mill Road. The federal style home was built in 1836.
The Middle Valley Community Center will also be on the tour, the group said.
