2015 Historic Folsom Holiday Home Tour

Nov 19, 2015 11:31AM ● Published by David Norby

The 2015 Historic Folsom Holiday Home Tour features nine (9) charming historic sites beautifully decorated for the holidays. Within the nine sites, you’ll also find a wonderful art and hand-crafted holiday gift boutique at the Murer House, docents in period clothing and an opportunity to enjoy the season as you step back in time. A special holiday highlight will include the 100-year celebration of the Granite School site. Plus keep a look out for Frosty the Snowman to make an appearance again this year…such a big hit last year with his debut! 

Folsom’s historic district dates from the mid-1800s and has numerous remarkable homes and buildings that evoke memories of times long gone by. This year’s holiday tour celebrates architectural styles that range from the post-gold rush of the 1860s to the roaring 1920s and includes Victorian, Bungalow, Italianate, Arts and Craft and other one-of-a-kind dwellings and structures. Whether you are a history buff, an architectural aficionado or just curious, the Folsom Historic Holiday Home Tour Committee knows you will enjoy the tour and “may visions of gingerbread dance in your head!”
