Hidden Plainfield: The key to today's House Tour

Today's tour kicks off here, where you may buy or pick up a ticket,
along with your map of the tour (Image from Google Maps).
Today's Hidden Plainfield is not hidden at all -- and there's no mystery -- it's the home where you want to go to pick up your map and ticket for today's Van Wyck Brooks Historic District's Old-Fashioned Christmas House Tour -- and that would be 946 Madison Avenue.

Sunday, December 4. Noon to 6:00 PM (Tickets available up to 4:30 PM). Pick up map and start tour at 946 Madison Avenue. Nine of the Van Wyck Brooks' Historic Districts magnificent homes will be open to visitors in all their holiday splendor.
This is always one of Plainfield's biggest draws, with throngs of visitors from the tri-state area. Three of the District's resident artists -- photographer Richard Lear, landscapist Gerry Heydt, and Maria Mijares, who does large transportation-themed installations -- will be taking part, with selections of their work on view and available for purchase. This year there will also be limited quantities of the District's 2012 calendar and a special commemorative Christmas tree ornament.
Tickets are $25/day of tour.
