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!”
Purchase your tickets early as attendance is limited. Past tours have sold out in advance and we expect the same for this year’s much anticipated historic holiday event!
NOTE: Each ticket is good for one (1) visit to each site. All ages, including children, must have a ticket. No exceptions.
The 2015 Historic Folsom Holiday Home Tour benefits the Folsom Historical Society and the Murer House Foundation and their efforts to preserve Folsom’s unique history and charm.
