Annual tour of homes locations announced


Experience the warm feelings and happiness of a Country Cottage Christmas with family and friends as the Mineola Landmark Commission and Junior Historians host the annual Holiday Tour of Homes. The tour will be held on Sunday, Dec. 8, from 1-4 p.m.

Ticket sales began on Nov. 18 with tickets available in advance at the Mineola Chamber of Commerce, at City Hall and from members of the Landmark Commission. Tickets may also be purchased on the day of the tour at the front door of each tour location. The ticket cost is $10.

Participating homes are the Godfrey home at 914 N. Johnson, the Miller home at 913 N. Johnson, and the Murray home at 1003 N. Johnson. These homes are rich in history, having been built in the early 1900s, and will be decorated in the warm setting of a Country Cottage Christmas.

The tour is a fundraiser for the Mineola Landmark Commission and supports projects such as Iron Horse Square and scholarships for MISD Junior Historians. It is also a service project for middle school and high school students who participate in Junior Historians.

During the tour participants may register for a door prize at each home, enjoy refreshments and have the opportunity to purchase fundraising items from the Landmark Commission.

Watch for more on the homes in the coming weeks.
