As a part of our mission to promote the appreciation of Albany's magnificent architecture, Historic Albany hosts an annual Holiday House Tour showcasing 10-15 historic buildings in December. The tour moves from neighborhood to neighborhood highlighting the very best in Albany's architecture and ongoing preservation efforts.
How it works: once you purchase tickets, your name will be on the list for ticket pick-up on the day of the tour. Pick up your tickets on the day of the tour at Touhey Forum in the Lally School of Education at 1009 Madison Avenue - the tickets are a map of all the sites. The tour is self-guided, so you can visit all of the houses at your leisure. There are "clusters" of houses so most people drive, park, and walk to a few houses at a time. The tour is rain, snow, or shine! No refunds on ticket purchases.
