Every year on the first Sunday in December, the Marietta Restoration Association hosts the Candlelight Tour of Homes in our town. Usually there are eight homes open for the public to tour, as well as public buildings maintained by the Restoration Association. Since this is Marietta's Bicentennial year, there will be ten houses on tour. We have been fortunate enough to participate in 2000, 2004 and 2010 and will continue in the future when we can. This years tour will be on Sunday, December 2, 2012 from 11 a.m..- 7 p.m.
This is a walking tour, but shuttle buses will be available from the parking area and between sites. Parking is available at the Donegal Intermediate School 1177 River Rd. Marietta, PA 17547. Tickets are available in advance for $17.00 each. They will be $20.00 each the day of the tour. This is a fund raiser for the Restoration Association to help maintain and restore the many buildings in town, such as the Old Town Hall, The Union Meeting House and the Bank Building and restoration of the Musselman/Vesta Office Building (a cooperative effort with Rivertownes PA USA) and the Historic Marietta Theater.
Here is the link to the homes that will be open for the tour.
The kids and grandkids were here on Thanksgiving weekend to get the house ready for Christmas! Dallas and I still have a bit more work to do, but it is coming together nicely! Feel free to stop by to say "HI" if you are able to come to the Candlelight Tour!
