YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The sixth annual Historic House Tour of Yorktown will take place on Sunday, May 1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Visitors will get a chance to see the Hallock’s Mill Farmhouse, a Tompkins family farmhouse which started out in the 1700’s as a tenant farm of Van Cortlandt Manor, learn about the Henry Street Settlement’s Echo Hill Camp for girls that was located  in Yorktown from 1900 to the 1950’s, and visit an Alpaca Farm.

Gina Miller, Co-Chair of the Historic House Tour Committee said that every tour is unique.

"It really is amazing that Yorktown has houses that date back to pre-Revolutionary War time. This event enables us all to learn about Yorktown’s rich history as well as interesting things our town has to offer today.”

This is the sixth year of the tour and to date, over 25 historic homes have been showcased while raising over $30,000 for the fight against cancer. All proceeds benefit the Relay For Life of Yorktown – American Cancer Society. Ticket price includes light luncheon served on the grounds of Soundview Preparatory School, 370 Underhill Ave, $50 for adults and $25 for children 16 and under.

Tickets can be purchased at Lorese Salon, 350 Downing Dr., Wishes Boutique, 1811 Commerce St. and the YCCC Building, 1974 Commerce St. or by contacting Gina Miller at for more information. On Sunday, May 1st, Registration for the Tour will be held at Soundview Preparatory School at 10:45 a.m. Tour brochures and maps will be distributed at time of registration.
