Six beautifully appointed homes in the historic Pine Point and Bell Island associations opened their doors for the Rowayton House Tour, which drew a record 500 people from around Fairfield County to the pretty shores of this coastal community. Hosted by the Rowayton Civic Association, the tour featured homes in a variety of styles and sizes, many of which displayed the talents of top local architects and interior designers. Thanks to perfect weather, the attendees were able to leisurely walk the tour route that began near Bayley Beach and to take in views of Long Island Sound. (Shuttles were available, too, courtesy of Ingersol Auto of Danbury.) A catered picnic lunch was served at the private Roton Point Club. Funds raised through the tour benefit the Rowayton Civic Association, which supports community initiatives and provides cultural programs and educational events.
