The 350th Anniversary Historic Homes Tour and TeaThe350th Anniversary Historic Homes Tour and Tea took place on June 13, 2010, during Marlborough's anniversary weekend.
The Tour provided a look inside homes representing the history of Marlborough, from The Peter Rice Homestead (1688) and farm houses from the 1700s with fireplaces for cooking, wide plank floors, and hand-hewn beams, to a Victorian home from the 1800s with intricate painting and Eastlake hardware and a charming cape built in 1920. Each house and owner has a story to tell.
In addition, there was a Tea in the Peter Rice Homestead, with tarts, coffee cakes, muffins, shortbread, biscotti, and tea cakes, and the music of a classical string duo.
