I’ll be Home for Christmas

You can visit seven homes besides your own on December 14 in Southport, NC. The Southport Tour of Homes sponsored by the Southport Historical Society will be held on that day from 2 PM until 7 PM. Proceeds will go to scholarships for seniors at South Brunswick High School. This tour will be held early enough for you to get some decorating ideas for your own home. The homes on the tour range from the Asa Dosher House built in the 1890s and on the National Register of Historic Places, to a new home built in 2012 and designed by local architect, Rich Bandera. In addition to the holiday decorations, you will enjoy the architectural elements of these homes including;
handmade doors
heart pine floors
a claw foot tub
a masonry fireplace
a deck built around a live oak tree
a handmade pine counter top
banks of windows
views of the Cape Fear river
reclaimed hardwood floors
Southport bows
hand-worked carpentry
old barn board floors
an arched brick fireplace
So, come to these homes for Christmas and walk on down to the waterfront for the flotilla afterwards. Make some more hometown memories again this year.
