Enjoy a rare opportunity to tour Brookeville’s private homes and historic sites from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The walking tour begins at the Brookeville Academy, 5 High St. It includes the award-winning “Madison House,” where President Madison retreated on Aug. 26, 1814, as the British burned the White House during the War of 1812.

The cost is $30 per person. Lunch will be sold.

Free parking will be available at Salem United Methodist Church, 12 High St.

Information and registration are at www.uscapitalforaday.org. All proceeds go to support the Brookeville War of 1812 Bicentennial Celebration, planned for Aug. 30-31.
