Included in the tour will be the First Presbyterian Church of Freehold, The Freehold firehouse, the Monmouth County Historical Association and homes located at 74 Broadway, 96 Broad Street, 47 Brinckerhoff Ave and 12 Vredenburgh Ave.
The home on Broad Street may be one of oldest homes in the Freehold area dating back to 1860. The house was renovated in 1995. The home at 47 Brinckerhoff is called Candyland Chateau and is a brick ranch. It was built in 1939 and its beautiful Holiday decor has warmed families in the area for decades. 74 Broadway is a colorful French Second Empire home and is filled with an unusual collection of antiques, curios, photos and artwork. The home at 12 Vredenburgh was built in 1924 and was one of several Sears Craftsmen homes. It features a Santa collection in the home.
Families are encouraged to enjoy this annual tour and it is a wonderful holiday celebration.
