2022 Holiday Tour of Historic Homes

Holiday Home Tour 

Wow the 2022 Lincolnton Holiday Tour of Historic Homes is now in the past. But that’s where a lot of of our minds were yesterday as hundreds of people came out to tour these beautiful, magnificent homes and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The tour brought back memories for some and a longing to know from where we came to others. To many it helped put us in the Christmas spirit, just seeing the amazing decorated Christmas trees. Some homes featured amazing architect and stunning handcrafted furniture pieces.  Each site had its own unique qualities that amazed all. 

The participants were all extremely appreciative of the homeowners for graciously opening up their homes to so many visitors. These homeowners took time out of a very busy holiday season to help improve the lives of the Lincoln County Foster Children.

We want to thank the homeowners: 

        The Frank & Rose Budd Chamberlain House 
Thomas and Betty Flohr

      Alexander-Carter-Kurtz House
   Marc and Kimberly Kurtz

      Mauney-Rudisill-Long House     
Brad and Whitney Davis

                Woodside Plantation
  Rick and Myra Ramseur

          St. Luke’s Episcopal Church 

The 185+ volunteers, who without their help this event would not have been possible! 

The Lincoln Cultural Center, Home Place Restaurant, 7th Moon Boutique, Treasures on Main, Burtons Farms General Store, and Amy’s Closet, Denver who sold many, many tickets.

Wayne & Janice Hoyle of Century 21 Realty for helping with all the signs.
