    Wiscasset Creative Alliance presents Wiscasset Homes on Tour on Saturday, July 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, picturesque Wiscasset had a prolific ship-building industry, now long gone, along the shores of the Sheepscot River. But those remaining emblems of wealth – the well-preserved, handsome Federal-style homes – are why Wiscasset is known as “the prettiest village in Maine.

    The 2023 tour will showcase uniquely beautiful homes and civic buildings built by wealthy ship captains and other early entrepreneurial citizens, featuring today’s esthetics, exquisite
    collections, and abundant gardens. Come tour these historic structures for a view into early taste and comfort – and how we live now – in the lovely, historic Village of Wiscasset, Maine.

    Visit Wiscasset’s Homes on Tour on July 8 for history, splendor, and inspiration! Tickets are $30 each with an optional pre-ordered lunch at $15. Visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets online in advance of the tour. Tickets can also be purchased on the day of the tour at the parking lot at 36 Water St., Wiscasset from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cash, checks, and plastic accepted.
