The Thomaston Historical Society will host its fourth annual Summer House Tour Saturday, July 9 (rain date Sunday, July 10), from 1 to 4 p.m. at the home of Neal and Sheilagh Guyer, 30 Main Street Mall.

This year’s home is a beautiful mid-sized Victorian gem built in 1875 by Thomaston carpenter and builder Thomas Russell.

It features many delightful period architectural details such as the stylish belvedere that tops the roof, a hooded crown supported by brackets that provides limited shelter for the front double door entry, and wooden quoins — decorative elements at the corners of the house, using wood painted to imitate stone, another very distinctive feature. Many more architectural elements can be seen both inside and outside this lovely home.

Tickets are $5 for Thomaston Historical Society members, $8 for non-members and $3 for children under 18. Tickets are available at the door and include light refreshments. A variety of raffle baskets will also be available for sale. For additional information, please call Mimi Zwick at 354-7029.
