Special Benefit to Kick Off 50th Home Tour
This year marks the Marshall Historic Tour. In celebration of those 50 years, we are offering 50 tickets to a first-time benefit event, "Basement to Ballroom, a Complete Tour of Stonehall." With a behind-the-scenes perspective, the Friday night event will showcase on of Marshall's classic historic homes.
Experience a relaxed evening, enjoy some lovely refreshments on the grounds of Stonehall, and see the entire home in a small group of 8-10 people. Tours will start at 5:00 pm, every 30 minutes and will conclude by 7:30 pm. This will allow you time for self-guided exploration and/or conversations with the homeowners.
Ticket cost is $100, with $80 being a tax-deductible donation to the Marshall Historical Society. Order early as tickets are going fast!
