WESTWOOD _ Organizers were pleased at the totals for The Westwood Home Tour 2004- a fund-raiser for the Westwood Historical Society.
According to society President Liz Kissel, 640 visitors strolled through nine Westwood residences and three public buildings. The homes ranged from a mansion built in the late 1800sto a more humble abode erected in 1980.
Profits from the tour, according to Treasurer Ed Roberts, were $5,870. That's a little higher than the 2002 tour, which saw 500 visitors and netted $5,050.
Proceeds go to the Historical Society, which has plans to house artifacts from the community, provide educational programming, and create an oral history project.
Roberts estimates the tour would have drawn hundreds more if not for a forecast of severe storms.
Still, "We thought it was a great success," said Maggie Prince, tour chairwoman.
