The variety of homes in our city means that every year there’s a new crop of homes sure to surprise and delight even the most devoted tour goers on the Annual Hoboken House Tour. On Sunday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a number of generous homeowners will open their doors to visitors as a benefit for the Hoboken Historical Museum. Tour goers will be treated to an array of domestic retreats, from restored Victorian brownstones to contemporary condos, with traditional and modern décor, and always a few unique homes.

The homes selected for the House Tour change every year, but  they reflect Hoboken’s rich architectural history, as well as some of  the hottest new properties. A diversity of decorating tastes is always represented. The tour is self-guided and typically takes a  little over two hours to visit all the homes.

The Hoboken Historical Museum’s House Tour is your ticket to enter some of the most distinctive homes in Hoboken.

This year’s tour offers a peek inside nine homes, from recently remodeled older homes to a showplace for an art-collecting family to a condo in one of the newest buildings on the waterfront. Several homes were decorated by noted interior designers, including Lucretia Moroni, whose handpainted fabrics, wall treatments and floor coverings can be seen at

The April 2005 issue of This Old House magazine listed “21 Grand Tours.” Hoboken was one of five for the Northeast. Come see what everyone is talking about.

A small army of volunteers is needed to help staff the Tour; please call 201-656-2240, option 7, or send an e-mail to   Volunteers receive a  free ticket to take the tour as a thank you for serving a three hour shift as a host at one of the houses.
