      2015 Point Shore House Tour

      This is the fifth annual Point Shore House Tour, a not-for-profit fundraising event.  You will be able to leisurely wander through 11 homes, open to the public for the first time, all on or near the Merrimack River, plus a remarkable riverfront garden.  This year's event will feature a home with original, untouched Rufus Porter murals. Built in 1806, it is the Captain Abraham Colby House. As an added bonus to the tour, for the many people interested in folk art painting, at 10:00AM there will be a lecture by Linda Carter Lefko, co-author of Folk Art Murals of the Rufus Porter School, regarding the importance of the Amesbury Porter walls to American folk art and historic painted plaster.  Linda is afffiliated with the Rufus Porter Museum, located in Bridgton, ME.  Please take advantage of this one-time opportunity to see the Rufus Porter murals. Boxed lunches will be on sale at the Union Congregational Church, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and which will be open for viewing during the tour.  Advance sale tickets are at a reduced rate.  Call (978) 388-6591 for more details.    Advance sale tickets can be picked up at the Union Congregational Church either on Friday, October 16, from 3:00-6:00 PM or on Saturday, October 17, commencing at 9:30 AM.
