 Holiday Stroll 2017

"A Progressive Cocktail Party House Tour"

The annual Holiday House Tour offers the opportunity to personally experience historic places in our community. Last year's tour was so popular we decided to have another unique tour. Guests will stroll on a candlelight tour of four distinctive private homes in the East Franklin-Rosemary Historic District enjoying wine and hors d'oeuvres at each stop. The tour will culminate at the Horace Williams House for a festive Dessert Party for all attendants.
