In addition, this year’s tour features an optional luncheon to be held at Patz On The River at 6 E. First St.

The luncheon will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., preceding the start of the house tour.

This will be an opportunity for tour participants to enjoy a special dining experience overlooking the Oswego River.

The specially prepared sit-down menu by Chef Emil Nymander will contain several lunch options.

The annual house tour fund-raiser has featured historic properties throughout the county for more than three decades.

“This event offers the community an opportunity to view in person the wonderful private and public landmarks that make our communities unique,” said Justin White, board trustee for the Heritage Foundation. “The luncheon option allows tour participants to enjoy a peaceful fall day enjoying what Oswego has to offer.”

The Heritage Foundation’s goal of protecting local landmarks is reflected in the extraordinary efforts of all the property owners, both public and private, to preserve the historical integrity of their properties.

Regular tickets for the house tour are $15, while the tour and luncheon tickets are $25.

All proceeds from the event will promote historic preservation projects in the county.

The Heritage Foundation is dedicated to the preservation, promotion and protection of the historic, architectural and environmental resources in Oswego County.
