The Framingham History Center will host a house tour this Sunday in the town's Saxonville neighborhood, which used to be a thriving mill village, history center officials said.

The tour, which runs from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., will show off vintage homes with historic architecture that have also been updated for the modern homeowner, history center officials said.

Houses along the tour include one with glass walls looking over Lake Cochituate; a New York Colonial that showcases the owner’s carpentry skill; an expanded single-level Campanelli ranch with a luxurious renovation; and a farmhouse in the town's rural northwest area.

Actress and local storyteller Libby Franck will also portray Mary Ware Dennett, a notable suffragette and social reformer, at Dennett's historic home, built by noted architect Hartley Dennett.

Complimentary refreshments will be served at the First Baptist Church, the longest continuous-use church building in Framingham.

Tour tickets for Framingham History Center members cost $25, while non-members must pay $30.
