Staunton was the site of an annual historic home Christmas tour, which drew out hundreds of people Sunday. This is the 35th year of the tour sponsored by the Historic Staunton Foundation.
Historic homes throughout the city are decorated and opened to the public to tour. This year, the Gospel Hill Historic District was chosen as the site of the tour.
Member of the Historic Staunton Foundation, Jeff Wickstrom, says, "Every year, it's a different neighborhood and the way houses are selected is suitable homes are chosen either by friends of the owners or the owners themselves submit it to the foundation and it's reviewed and decisions are made."
Proceeds from the tour benefit the Historic Staunton Foundation.
