Scheduling indoor events has not been reasonable at a time when COVID is a possibility, and therefore this year’s Christmas Tour of Homes is taking a different approach. A driving tour of the neighborhood is planned with several of our homes having specific themes. As everyone is part of the community, all are encouraged to add a little something special to the outdoor decorations so that the tour guests can appreciate everyone’s historic homes.
Our vision is to make this a community celebration to include our downtown merchants, city churches, and any other groups interested in participating. Time of the driving tour is 6:00-9:00. We intend to market the East Tennessee and Middle Tennessee regions so we can showcase our historic community to as many as possible. This is a fund raiser, and we intend to charge $20/vehicle towards the restoration of the Historic Harriman Hall (formerly known as the Harriman Christian Church) for the driving tour.
