Christmas Tour of Homes in Historic Texarkana This Weekend [Interview]
Coming up this weekend you have the chance to tour some beautiful old homes in Texarkana with the Christmas Tour of Homes. It all takes place this Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3 from 4PM to 8PM both days.
The Quality Hill Neighborhood Association will take you back in time as you tour 4 beautiful homes in the historic areas of Texarkana all dressed up for the Christmas season. These houses are all over 100 years old.
We talked with Mary Warner and Judith White with Quality Hill Neighborhood Association to find out more about this event.
As you tour the homes you'll learn the history of each house and their significance to the early development of Texarkana. A tour of the Lindsey Railroad Museum in downtown Texarkana is also included.
Tickets are $25 per person.
You can purchase tickets online now on Eventbrite https://texarkana-christmas-tour-of-homes.eventbrite.com.
