Holiday Tour of Homes
December 21 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00pm, repeating until December 22, 2019
Eight gorgeous Franklin homes will be on display during the Christmas season at the Holiday Tour of Homes. Franklin Preservation is offering the event on December 21 from 11AM – 5 PM and December 22 from NOON – 4 PM. There will be a shuttle bus available on both days. Tickets are on sale now at the Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce, The Olive Vault, and online from Eventbrite. Tickets are $15 prior to the tour and $18 on the day of the event. A limited number of tickets are being sold. If the tour sells out in advance, there will be no “at the door” sales.
The tour begins at Peddlers and Paddlers Inn on Elk Street where tour participants must exchange their ticket for a brochure and wristband, allowing entrance to the houses. Franklin’s Historic District is one of Pennsylvania’s architectural gems with more than 200 significant buildings that represent over 20 different styles of architecture. Other lovely, historic homes on the tour will be the Koos House, the Heydrick House, the Grant/Joy House, the Dale/Karns House, the Heathcote House, the Beatty House and the Cox House, representing Italianate, Colonial Revival and Arts & Crafts styles.
