New this spring is a Saturday afternoon walking tour through some remarkable kitchens in Beacon Hill and the Back Bay.
‘Creative Kitchens Tour 2014’, to be held this Saturday, April 5, offers a rare opportunity for guests to step inside eight 19th century townhouses to glimpse their gracious and distinctive kitchens, ranging in décor from cozy and classic to sleek and modern.
The Beacon Hill Village (BHV) is sponsoring the tour. “Kitchens and food are at the heart and hearth of the home, and neighbors and hospitality are the fabric of the community,” said Laura Connors, executive director of the nonprofit membership organization that helps Boston residents age 50 and over age in their homes. “Partnering with architects, kitchen designers, florists and local chefs, BHV will shine a spotlight on the creativity that goes into and comes out of our kitchens.”
The walking tour will be held from 1-4 p.m., rain or shine. Parking is available at the Boston Common Garage and a shuttle service is available between Beacon Hill and Back Bay.
Tickets for the tour are $45 and may be purchased online at www.beaconhillvillage.org or by calling the office at 617-723-9713. Tickets will be available on the day of the tour for $50 at the Hampshire House, 84 Beacon Street, or at Cambridge Trust Company, 65 Beacon Street. All proceeds benefit Beacon Hill Village.
