The house will be open to the public for tours through May 24. from 11a.m.-5 p.m. daily. Special features during the two week Show House include programs and/or demonstrations held daily on a variety of interesting and entertaining topics, lunch will be available from 11:30-2 p.m. daily, and the “Crown Raffle” which includes a $1,000 gift certificate to Jaffe Jewelers, an overnight Spa Package for two from French Lick Resort, and a Dayton Memorabilia & Events package.

Tickets for the Show House are $15.00 at the door or $12.00 advance sale.  Children ages 7-12 are $5.00 each - children 6 and under are free.  Groups of 10 or more are $12 per person.   

Proceeds from the Show House will go to the historic preservation of the house and to the Dayton Society of Interior Designers Scholarship Fund.  Call The Dayton Woman’s Club at 228-1124 or
