Around Town: Georgetown Historic Home Tour Coming Soon

Georgetown Heritage Society

One of my favorite new holiday traditions is the historic home tour hosted by the Georgetown Heritage Society. I love a home tour no matter what, but historic homes are near and dear to my heart. In fact, it was the home tour last Christmas that motivated us to purchase our own historic home in Georgetown!

The tour is scheduled for December 11th and 12th from noon to 5:00. Tickets may be purchased in advance on-line and through several local Georgetown stores OR the day of the tour only at the heritage society. The homes all have historical significance (of course) and will be decked out in holiday finery. If the weather is sunny and crisp like it was last year, this is guaranteed to be a lovely afternoon out. Make sure you stop by the Monument Cafe for dessert too!
