Event Description

Upstairs, downstairs, and All Around the Town!

For almost three decades homeowners in this Victorian village have invited visitors inside their historic residences to share the joys of the holiday season. The tradition continues Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, 3:00-8:00 p.m., when the Eureka Springs Preservation Society hosts the 30th Annual Eureka Springs Christmas Tour of Homes.

Ten locations are participating in this year's tour, giving guests a glimpse of a bygone era. All stops on the self-guided tour will be lavishly decorated for the season with Victorian attired docents at each site to relate the history of each home. Each residence offers an opportunity to revisit the grandeur of the graceful Victorian era and its unique, enchanting homes.

Visitors will be treated to choir and band music, carolers, refreshments and merriment. Tour goers will also see elegant ladies adorned in their finery and dapper gentlemen dressed in tails and ties as they stroll through the only entire downtown in the country listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

There are numerous steps, stairs and inclines on the tour route and inside the homes. Wear comfortable, rubber-soled walking shoes! Allow 1-2 hours for tour.

On the day of the tour, bring your printed ticket to the Penn Memorial First Baptist Church, 100 Spring Street, after 2:00pm, and redeem your ticket for lapel passes and tour booklet.
