Annual Calvary House Tour to Showcase Stunning Summit Homes May 1

April 10, 2014 at 3:32 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - The Calvary House Tour will be celebrating its 42nd year May 1, with a line-up of five spectacular Summit homes.  

Each home is architecturally distinctive, freshly decorated, with Spring's flowering gardens making for an ideal viewing experience.

Lillie Zachary, a long-time Summit resident, interior designer, and parishioner of Calvary Church, conceived the idea of organizing a Springtime house tour to promote fellowship within our community and to help raise funds for worthy outreach efforts of the Woman of Calvary Episcopal Church.

This year’s house tour will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and provides an opportunity to view five distinctive homes that showcase great style and design trends in the community.  One of the stunning homes featured on the tour was designed by the architect John James, AIA, with interior design by Valerie Grant Interiors.   

Tickets purchased in advance are $35, and are available for sale at Paperfolio , The Muddy Boot, and Lois Schneider Realtors in Summit.   Tickets will be $40 on the day of the tour and may be purchased at Calvary Church, 31 Woodland Avenue.

The “Women of Calvary” is an organization representing Calvary Episcopal Church in Summit, whose mission it is to encourage fellowship and opportunities that strengthen its commitment to people in need within their parish, the community, and the world.  For more information on the tour, visit
