This Fall, as Mount Tabor celebrates its 150th Anniversary year, the Mount Tabor Historical Society's annual House Tour will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2019. The self-guided tour will be held rain or shine 11am to 4pm.

This walkable tour of the Mount Tabor Historic District provides visitors an inside look at the unique charm of this historic community with more than 15 private houses, plus several historic buildings open to the public. Annual features include a furnished replica Camp Meeting Tent and the Richardson History House, a camp meeting cottage museum. Stop by the gift shop, which is stocked with Mount Tabor souvenirs and vintage items. For our visitors lunches and beverages will be for sale.

Founded in 1869, the Mount Tabor Historic District embodies the distinctive characteristics of a permanent Methodist Camp Meeting Ground that evolved into a summer residential community. Particularly notable is the architecture of the early camp meeting Stick-Style and Gothic Revival-influenced cottages with their prominent steep gables, open porches and elaborate gingerbread embellishments.

This event is the largest fundraiser for the Mount Tabor Historical Society. The non-profit organization puts all event proceeds back into the community through beautification, educational, and restoration projects, including the restoration of the Richardson History House.

Parking will be provided at the Mount Tabor School, located on Park Road, Morris Plains, off Route 53 (GPS: use 864 Park Rd. Morris Plains) where a shuttle bus will be available for transport into the heart of Mount Tabor. Mount Tabor is located in Morris County along Route 53 between Denville and Morris Plains. Visitors who prefer mass transit can take the NJ Transit Morris & Essex line to the Mount Tabor stop.

Tickets are $25 per person in advance via online order or mailed check or tickets can be purchased for $30 on the day of the Tour. For advance tickets, information about the community, photos, and directions, visit our website: http://mounttabornj.org, or call show contact info .
