“Our neighbors are so generous in opening their doors to these beautiful, century old homes,” Susan Gray, president of St Anne’s Hill Historic District said.

“There’s so much history to our city and to each house, and the Holidays are just a great time to remember it while getting in the spirit of the season.”

A guide, dressed in period costumes and brimming with information about the remarkable history of the Historic District and life in the 19th century, leads each tour throughout the neighborhood’s beautiful Victorian Homes.

“So many volunteers’ hours of hard work make this event a great family tradition,” Gray said. “For as wonderful as the houses are, it’s really the people that make the Holiday Tour, and our neighborhood, so special.”
