Shelter Island Now: The Shelter Island Historical Society is presenting a tour of homes featuring innovative contemporary architecture and sensitively restored historic homes, culminating with an open house at its newly constructed Shelter Island History Center from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm.

The houses on the tour have been published in Architectural Digest, Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, T Magazine, Dezeen, Architect Magazine and other publications. All homes, whether modern or historic, take advantage of the natural beauty and idyllic tranquility of Shelter Island. The History Center, completed this year, beautifully melds the historic Havens House with a modern facility that includes an impressive stone and concrete archival vault as well as additional exhibition, meeting and curatorial space.

Tickets are $50.00 per person in advance or $55.00 per person on the day of the event and may be picked up starting at 9:00 am on the day of the tour at the History Center, 16 South Ferry Road (Route 114). Tour participants will receive a map and brochure when they pick up their tickets. The homes can be visited in any order. Some (but not all) of the homes will be accessible to those with limited mobility.
