Thirty years! Can you believe it? The Colleyville Woman’s Club has been putting on its Holiday Home Tour for 30 years now, and we’re just amazed at its longevity! The tour, which is slated for Sunday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will feature five gorgeous homes in Colleyville with halls that are decked for the season, including the gorgeous Heritage Hill Queen Anne Victorian mansion designed by American architect George Franklin Barber. This home was built for less than $2,500 in 1895, from “the finest materials.” Today it is an incredible legacy to the community, thanks to homeowner Joan Vandergriff, who had its 110 pier foundation relocated from Bonham, Texas, to Colleyville, and nary a window was damaged!

And back for its second year is Santa’s Sweet Stop at Taylor Renovations, which will help equip tour-goers for holiday cooking and decorating. Whole Foods has sponsored this stop, so look for cooking demonstrations and sweets for guests! You can visit with Santa Claus or buy a poinsettia for $10 each.

If you want to see these five beautiful abodes, you can purchase your ticket for $20 ahead of the tour at locations listed on the Colleyville Woman’s Club website. Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity!
