The Annual Benton House Tour of Homes

The Benton House’s Annual Tour of Homes is the primary annual fundraising activity for the House and showcases architectural and historical beauty that is Irvington. Proceeds from past tours have helped to provide permanent signage in the front yard, a new slate roof, gutters and downspouts, fifty new folding chairs, a much needed trim, removal of dead trees on the grounds and foundation repairs.
