2014 is the 41st Annual Holiday Tour of Homes
Saturday & Sunday, December 6 & 7, 2014
Tour Hours: Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Sunday 12:00 - 5:00 p.m.
The first weekend of December has been The Heritage Guild of Collin County Holiday Tour of Homes since 1973! The tradition of opening historic homes for a public tour began when our founders first opened their homes to raise money to purchase the Dulaney House and Cottage and the grounds that eventually became Chestnut Square.
Every year five or six homes and historic structures are decorated for Christmas and opened for the tour. The proceeds from ticket sales and an annual raffle are a major component of the ongoing operation of Chestnut Square. Take a peek at the 2007 tour homes, the 2008 tour homes, the 2009 tour homes, and the 2010 tour homes.
This year we are partnering with the Samaritan Inn, Collin County's only homeless shelter! The Samaritan Inn will decorate one of the homes on Hunt Street with items from their Thrift Store and hold a Thrift Store sale on site. A portion of the ticket sales for the Holiday Tour will go to the Samaritan Inn.
Tickets are $15 in advance/$20 at the door
