Make plans now to attend the Covington Heritage Foundation’s (CHF) annual History and Holly Home Tour, which will be presented on Sunday, Dec. 9, from 2:30-5:30 p.m. The owners of seven beautiful homes in the E. 15th Avenue neighborhood will open their doors to visitors for this event, which has become a north shore holiday tradition.
History and Holly is being presented in cooperation with the City of Covington Office of Cultural Arts and Events.
This year’s tour will focus on newer homes that exude historic Covington charm. Enjoy this perfect holiday outing with friends and family while walking the pedestrian-friendly route, touring the festively adorned homes, enjoying the sounds of the season from strolling carolers, and sipping wine provided at refreshment stations. Trams will also be available.
