The 21st Annual Holiday Historic House Tour
November 29, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Historic homes in the area open their doors to the public. Most are decorated for the holidays and some have live music, and refreshments.
Below are some of the homes on this year’s tour:
1. The Former Marion County Sheriff’s Home (The Marion County Historical Society, Inc. and Museum) Construction on the sheriff’s home and connecting jail began on October 22, 1909 and was completed on March 12, 1912. The courthouse, jail, and sheriff’s home were all built to interconnect and all three structures shared a common utilities connection. The Sheriff’s home became the Marion County Museum in 1986.
2. The Methodist Protestant Church (The Gatherings)The cornerstone of this church was laid in 1896. This church features over 40 stained glass windows dating back to the 1800s including one from the original “Church on the Hill” circa 1834. Governor Francis H. Pierpont and his wife Julia attended this church.
