Come join us for the
Snowflake tour of
Charles Village Homes:
Sun., December 21:
Last season, more than 200 visitors came to admire the wide array of festively decorated historic homes -- everything from high Victorians to late Edwardians, flat-fronts to swell-fronts, brick triple deckers to porch-front painted ladies. The day was cold and sunny, perfect for brisk walking. And there was a lovely dusting of snow left from earlier in the week.
Home-owners treated guests to cider and cookies. Good cheer was abundant. Said one home-owner after a hectic day of visitors: "Old house lovers are the nicest people!" The House Tour Committee looks forward to putting on another great tour next year. Mark your calendar and spread the word! The Sunday before Christmas.
Charles Village Civic Association sponsors the tour in partnership with the Village Learning Place, the neighborhood's educational and program center.
Your ticket includes free admission to the Homewood Museum, an historic treasure, located on the Johns Hopkins University campus.
Tickets are $15 ($12 for students/seniors) and can be purchased in advance. Treat your friends and family to a festive afternoon in Baltimore's historic Charles Village.
