For the past 60 years proceeds from the Annual Christmas Homes Tour have been used on projects in the surrounding community. The Club’s mission is to provide education and beautification for the pleasure and enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.
Last year in celebration of the return of the Christmas Homes Tour, and to coincide with many of Colonial Williamsburg Grand Illumination activities, the tour showcased on two Saturdays (December 3rd and December 10th).
This year three homes will be featured on December 3rd, and three homes will be featured on December 10th. Both days of the Tour will feature the Colonial Williamsburg Designer House.
The Coke-Garrett House today is the Williamsburg home of Cliff Fleet, president, and CEO of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
William Timson, a prosperous York County planter, built one of the oldest dwellings in Williamsburg.
Heather Chadduck Hillegas, interior designer, will decorate the Nelson-Galt House; she will decorate the city’s oldest residential building which dates back to 1695.
The Robert Nicolson House is one of the eighty-nine original buildings in Colonial Williamsburg.
The property was first owned by George Wythe I749 and purchased by attorney George Davenport in 1760 who built the residence with a gambrel roof at one end separating the living quarters and was kept in the family until 1779.
