It’s an opportunity to experience the holiday season in one of the nation’s historic areas by showing the seasonal beauty of Old Louisville while at the same time preserving the uniqueness of a Victorian neighborhood.
The 35th Annual Old Louisville Holiday House Tour gets underway this weekend, December 3rd and 4th.
“Old Louisville sends out warm holiday greetings with this tour and everyone is invited to come and see Christmas from a time gone by,” says Councilman David James (D-6). “Old Louisville is a wonderful treasure for our city but it takes a very special significance at this time of year.”
The Old Louisville Holiday House Tour will feature nine homes as well as the Women’s Club of Louisville. Those who take the tour will also get a chance to see the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum in the St. James area. A special tea will be served both days featuring holiday teas and other favorites that were unique to the 19th Century.
“The 2011 Holiday House Tour promises to be a most delightful way to usher in the Holiday Season!” says Joan Stewart, Chair of the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council. “I encourage anyone interested in getting into the holiday spirit to join us in Old Louisville this weekend.”
The tours begin at 12:00pm on both days and last until 6:00pm. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 Dollars on the days of the tours. Those who plan to take the tour can park at Cochran Elementary at Fifth and Lee Street and then take a shuttle which runs throughout the day.
The Holiday House Tour is the major fundraising event of the year for the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council. It supports the Council’s mission of promoting and improving the Old Louisville Neighborhood.
“If you need a break from the hectic holiday season or just want to walk through an historic Louisville neighborhood, then come out and enjoy the fun,” says James.
