The Washington Historical Society has sponsored a holiday home tour for 34 years and will continue the annual event on December 10.  This tour has become a very popular event to kick off the winter holiday spirit.  This year the tour will include a lovely older home near Washington Square, a new home in the newest part of Devonshire, two homes in Trail’s Edge, and one home on N. Main.  Also open for visitors will be the Historical Society headquarters at 201 Zinser Place. Stop at the Dement-Zinser House to purchase a ticket, pick up a Paypal ticket, and/or enjoy the displays, spiced cider and cookies.

Roger French and his sister Jackie French welcome visitors to 821 Anne Street where they will have their holiday collections featured, and Darlene Philips will open her tastefully decorated condo at 1302 Mitchell.  In the newest (north) part of Devonshire, Brice and Robin Hahn will welcome visitors to their new home at 701 Wellington.  Julie Burns and Patrick Murphey will open their ranch at 604 N. Main, and Les and Penny Wright’s home near Washington Square at 108 N. High will feature cozy, traditional décor.

The Christmas Home Tour is the only fundraiser for the Washington History Society, and the Society wishes to thank homeowners and all helpers who make this event a success.  Plan to eat lunch or dinner at Blacksmith’s on Washington Square; they will donate a portion of proceeds on tour day to the Society.
