The Junior League of Boston is sponsoring the 2017 Designer Show House at the 1853 William Flagg Homer House in Belmont, MA, just steps away from picturesque downtown Belmont. The house is currently owned and preserved by the Belmont Woman’s Club
, and was previously owned by William Flagg Homer and his wife Adeline Wellington, uncle and aunt of American landscape painter, Winslow Homer. The house, an architectural combination of both the Bracketed Italianate and French Mansard style, is set on a hill, with sweeping views of the Boston Skyline. This is a charitable event with proceeds going to non-profit organizations for the benefit of women and community.
Meet Eileen at the entrance of this historic house, followed by lunch at the Patou Thai restaurant. Tickets costing $20 + $5.25 service fee are currently available online through Goldstar. Tickets purchased between now and October 6 via the Junior League website are $35, after that, $40 online or at the door.
