Holiday Home Tour

After a year’s hiatus, the Hillsboro Arts & Crafts Association Holiday Home Tour is back on track and scheduled for 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 2.

The tour includes five homes in Hillsboro, ranging in era from historic to modern and in size from spacious to cozy. One of the oldest houses on the tour is the large, two-story classic owned by Kevin and Morene Fisher at 404 E. Grand. The home, known to locals as the “Old Schroeder House,” has been restored by the Fishers.

At the other end of the spectrum is the spacious, relatively new home owned by Bob and Betty Seibel at 206 Briarwood Lane in Carriage Hills.

Between those two are the homes of Bruce and Lorraine Anthony at 208 E. B Street, Donna Bagley and Harriet Bagley at 201 S. Washington, and Laney and Emogene Kuhn at 202 S. Kennedy.

Beyond the five homes, planners are offering a “Holiday Table” display at the Hillsboro United Methodist Church, 905 E. D Street.

Tickets for the tour will be $5 each and can be purchased at the door or in advance from the following Hillsboro businesses: Emprise Bank, Dale’s Supermarket or Nancy’s Fashions.

Proceeds of the event will go toward the community’s summer theater program for children.
