History and Holly Home Tour 2019

The Covington Heritage Foundation will hold its annual History and Holly Home Tour on Sunday, December 8, between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

For the first time the tour will include two historic churches. Featured will be four homes in the W. 19th, W. 20th and Jefferson avenues area, as well as Covington Presbyterian Church, and St. Peter Catholic Church.

Music will be featured in a special program at St. Peter Catholic Church from 1:30-3:30 p.m. 

The annual home tour has become a perfect outing for Covington residents and out-of-town visitiors to enjoy with friends and family as they walk the pedestrian-friendly route (trams will also be available), touring the seasonally decorated homes and churches, and enjoying the sounds of the season from a harpist and strolling carolers. In addition, there will be new Christmas cards and ornaments (by local artists Suzanne King and Jax Frey, respectively) available for purchase.
