SAFE HAVEN of PIKE COUNTY, INC. PRESENTS THE 14TH ANNUAL HOUSE TOUR: “BEHIND CLOSED DOORS”


On Sunday, September 9, 2012, Safe Haven of Pike County, Inc. proudly presents its 14th Annual “Behind Closed Doors” House Tour. This year’s event showcases select historic homes in Dingmans Ferry, including some listed on the National Register of Historic Places. “We are thrilled that so many residents have offered to open their truly remarkable and special homes in Dingmans Ferry for such a great cause,” says Allison Taylor, chair of this year’s planning committee.

This year’s tour offers a diversity of architectural styles, from Greek Revival to French Provincial and beyond. Constructed in 1912, the historic Marie Zimmerman House was occupied by one of the most diverse and gifted women artists in the United States. The Zimmerman home has just recently undergone a complete renovation and will likely be the highlight of this year’s event. Also built at the turn of the 20th century was the home of William Sproul, the 27th governor of Pennsylvania, featured on this year’s tour as a wonderful showcase of the arts and crafts movement of the time.

A reminder of “Old Dingman’s Ferry” on the tour is the Dutch Reformed Church, an example of mid-1850s neo-classical structures and Greek Revival architecture. Additionally, the tour includes a depression-era hunting lodge on Log Tavern Road, nestled on the private 575-acre Dwarfskill Preserve. Rounding out the tour on 13 secluded acres is the Norwegian-style restored Trapper’s Cabin, overlooking a series of breathtaking waterfalls.

Tickets for this event are $25 per person, and all proceeds benefit Safe Haven’s services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Tickets are available for purchase on the day of the event (September 9th) at Arnold’s, located at the intersection of Rte. 739 and Milford Road in Dingmans Ferry, or at the Pike County Library at the corner of Broad and Harford Streets in Milford. We hope you will consider spending the day with us cherishing the remarkable abundance of beauty, history, and art in Dingmans Ferry. For more information or to reserve tickets, please call Safe Haven at 570-296-2827.
