"Old Home Week" is a week of celebration where the former residents of a house come and celebrate with the current residents. It started in 1902 by Phillip Edward Baer because he wanted an reunion-like event to enjoy with his friends and neighbors.

The festivities can include games, friendly competitions, prizes, parades, and decorations. It is an event for the whole community to come together and be joyful about their past, present, and future. It is not a celebration held every year, but in intervals of 3, 5 or 10.
