If you’d like an up close and personal peek at how the other half lived during the Valley’s industrial age, mark Thursday, May 18, 2023, on your calendar.

That’s when the Sharon Historical Society is sponsoring the Historic West Hill Mansions Tour.

You can discover the history and architecture of bygone days during a self-guided tour of historic homes in the city.

Stops will include the Carley mansion at 333 West State Street; the Rose mansion at 371 West State Street; the Deforest house at 395 West State Street; the Stevenson mansion at 109 North Irvine Avenue; the Perkins estate at 300 West State Street; and more.

A special souvenir handout detailing the tour stops and other interesting facts about West Hill will be provided to participants. The Sharon Historical Society will also have memberships and additional publications available for purchase.

A $10 donation per attendee is required on the day of the event to participate. Admission wristbands will be given to participants at the tour starting point.

The self-guided tour will begin at the Perkins estate, inside the main hall of the Perkins mansion, at 300 West State Street, Sharon on Thursday, May 18, 2023, at 6:00 pm and will run until 8:00 pm.
