Come to the “Annual Nature’s Open House Tour” and see 100+ custom built fairy & gnome dwellings set along a half mile stroll through wooded trails during fall foliage season.

The Tour was inspired by renown author Tracy Kane’s “Fairy Houses Series” of books and the amazing annual tour of “Fairy Houses in Portsmouth, NH”

Enjoy a multi-generational family and community event celebrating nature awareness and literacy. We hope to inspire children and adults to experience the joy of reading and to interact with nature through building these unique habitats for fairies, gnomes and nature’s friends.

The tour involves the creative participation of several schools and other community organizations. Tour ticket proceeds benefit Elementary Schools & Trails Fund. Visit our permanent “Gnome and Fairy Village” for families and friends inspired to build their own houses, year-round.

  • Excites children to explore the natural world

  • Provides quiet time to observe and discover
  • Connects the written word to the natural world
