Homes featured in the tour date from mid-1800's to early 1900's, and range in style from Queen Anne cottages to Neoclassical Revival and Italianate residences. Attendees will witness a mix of holiday decor, either mirroring the home's yesteryears or matching the modern lifestyles of the homeowners.
