Christmas Open House Tour
This Sunday about 18 houses in the Court Chemeketa Residential Historic District will be open from 1-5 for Christmas touring and cheer. Here's what our house on Court Street looked like in 1985, and the snow gets us in the mood for the big storm heading for us this weekend!!
Touring starts at St. John's Lutheran Church at 1350 Court Street (built 1949-53) where you can get the list of open houses and, if you are so inclined, make a donation of either food or cash to the Marion/Polk Food Bank. The tour is free, but there are a lot of hungry mouths to feed in our community this Christmas.
Many home owners will be displaying their own artwork so come tour and see quilts, chair caning, botanical drawings, paintings, and much much more!!!
