Staunton Holiday Open House Tour Continues Despite Bad Weather
Holiday Open House Tour
STAUNTON, Va (WVIR) -
The winter weather couldn't cancel holiday cheer in Staunton, at least not entirely.
People came out for the annual Holiday Open House Tour on Sunday, but the bad road conditions made it too difficult to access two of the houses because of their location at the top of steep hills. The tour was cut short two hours early.
The annual event allows visitors to take a tour of historic homes that have been renovated and decorated for the holidays.
“It really is a promotion of historic preservation, education about historic preservation but also a chance to truly enjoy these beautiful homes,” says Frank Strassler of the Historic Staunton Foundation
The Historic Staunton Foundation says this is the first time in 41 years they had to change the tour because of weather.
