Christmas Home Tours

December 3, 2022

Come visit our quaint town all dressed up for Christmas. Stroll the streets taking in the decorated shop windows.

Four of Louisiana's historic homes and the Belong Church will be open to welcome visitors. The church was built in 1867 by the First Methodist Episcopal Church. It has had a long and varied history as a church, Louisiana's city hall and jail, an art center, a private residence and now a church once again. Three of the homes on this year's tour will be making their debut, as they have not been on the tour in over 20 years or not at all.  These grand old homes will be dressed up in their Christmas finery, waiting for you to tour.

Tours will take place between 3-7 pm.  Tickets will not be sold after 5pm and no tours will be given after 7pm.

Tickets are $20 if purchased in advance, and $25 the day of the tour. We respectfully ask that no children under the age of ten and all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please reserve your tickets in advance.  Once we receive your reservation an email will be sent to you with information on how to pay and where to pick up your tour ticket the day of the tour.
