These five houses will be transformed showcasing owner collections, magic from talented Historical Society volunteers and local decorators and florists.

The owners love to decorate for the holidays and are kind enough to share with you. Decorated by Flowers by Valjeane and owners
  • 119 East 6th Street-A charming cottage house that once served as a barn and later renovated into a home and lovingly restored. The decorations in this home are a family affair. Decorated by Judy Cline and family.
