The Lake Bluff History Museum’s 2013 Historic Christmas Home Tour features five houses which are all new to the event this year. This delightful tour includes Lansdowne, an historic lakefront mansion built for Harry B Clow; a “cottage” dating back to Lake Bluff’s days as a thriving summer resort in the 19th century; a Prairie style home built in the area known as the Artists’ Colony by an artist and his wife, the editor of Poetry Magazine; a bungalow in the Arts & Crafts style and an early 20th century Gable Front home representative of Lake Bluff’s transition to a suburban community.  This year’s tour also provides access to two additional homes with holiday boutiques participants can visit to browse and purchase holiday items.
