Anniston Museum's "Homes for the Holidays Tour"

On Tuesday, Dec. 5, the museum invites you to “Deck the Halls … the Porch … the Walls!” at its annual Homes for the Holidays tour. If you need some holiday inspiration, this is your event.

From 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., this wonderful, fanciful self-driving tour of area homes (all decked out for the season) encompasses three dwellings, a historic school of the Choccolocco Valley and an Anniston inn, promising some of the most beautiful holiday decorations you're likely to see this season.

Local residents Glenda and David Bryant, Karen and Russ Connell, and Penny and Butch Welch will open their doors to guests in this year's tour, which has become a favorite tradition in the area and an event that will benefit the museum.

Also featured in the tour is the historic Choccolocco School, where Georgia Calhoun will give a special presentation at 11 a.m. and again at 4 p.m.

And what Homes for the Holidays tour would be complete without a tour of the Victoria? New owners Phil and Amber Ledbetter have created enhanced holiday decorations for the season. A beautifully appointed lodging at any time of the year, the Victoria really shines for the holidays.

For the sixth year, the Victoria will sponsor Homes for the Holidays. Chairman Becky Hollingsworth invites you to take a peek at the homeowners' décor and traditions, to hear of the area's centuries-old significance and to visit the 1600 Quintard Ave. inn that makes this project a success.

If you and your touring partners would like to make a full day of it, plan lunch or dinner in one of the lovely dining rooms of the Victoria. Call them at 236-0503 for reservations.

Advance tickets for Homes for the Holidays are $15 for museum members and $20 for the general public. All day-of-event tickets will be $20.

Call June Sariano at 237-6766 for more information or to purchase tour tickets. Group ticket orders (buy 12, get 13th free) are welcomed.

It's a grand opportunity to spend a pre-holiday afternoon or evening with friends and family.
