Help Wanted: We need some House Tour booklets


Regular readers of this website know that we are a bit obsessive-compulsive about finding lost history and completing collections.  Ok, really a lot of OCD.

Many hundreds, perhaps a few thousand, of folks have attended the Candlelight House Tours sponsored by Friends of the Riverton Library over the years. If you have a booklet for a year that we are missing, please either give it to us, send us scans, or lend it so we could scan it for our files.

We already have these booklets: 1976; 1978; 1980; 1984; 1986; 1988; 1990; 1992; 1994; 1996; 1998; 2001; 2003; 2005; 2007; 2009; 2011; 2013

So you’re wondering if they were held every other year, why did years switch from even to odd after 1998. And, was 1976 the first House Tour?

Inquiring minds want to know. Please comment below if you can help bring this bit of Riverton history up to date.
