The gorgeous homes of Georgetown’s Historic District are shining even more brightly these days, with swirls of twinkling lights, mantles festooned with fragrant boughs, heirloom holiday ornaments hung with care, and the smell of cinnamon everywhere. Come get in the holiday spirit with a tour of these holly, jolly homes during the sixteenth annual Friends of the Georgetown Library Yuletide Home Tour. This year’s event is planned for Saturday, December 8, from 1 – 5 pm.
Eight beautiful residences in Georgetown’s Historic District will be bedecked in holiday finery and opened for visiting. In addition, two venerable houses of worship will open their doors to tour goers: Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church and Temple Beth Elohim.
SPECIAL THIS YEAR: Participants in the Home Tour will have exclusive access to the beautiful Designer's Showcase at the Kaminski House Museum! Each room of the Kaminski House is decorated in seasonal splendor by designers from Charleston to North Myrtle Beach. The Home Tour is self-guided and maps will be provided.
“The tour is a wonderful way to celebrate the season and get inspiration for your own decorating,” enthused Friends President Bob Willey. “It’s an entertaining afternoon for a good cause: all proceeds go to support the children and youth programs at the Library.”
Also returning this year is Santa’s Shop at the Georgetown Library, where ten stellar craftspeople will display unique wares. Santa’s Shop will be open from 10 am – 5 pm on the day of the Tour. It is a great place to find truly unique Christmas gifts, or perhaps something for yourself.
Tickets are $25 per person, ($20 for members of Friends groups of any of the County libraries), and may be purchased in advance at the Georgetown Library, 405 Cleland Street; the Waccamaw Library, 41 St. Paul Place; the Andrews Library, 105 N. Morgan Street; and the Carvers Bay Library, 13048 Choppee Road. All tickets and tour maps are to be picked up on December 8th any time after 10 am at the Georgetown Library.
