The 54th Annual Williamsburg Christmas Homes Tour, presented by the Green Spring Garden Club Inc., features houses decorated with holiday floral arrangements. All are located in and around The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s Revolutionary City.

Nearby on Waller Street, the Elizabeth Carlos House contains the current residents’ collection of English antiques and treasures. One additional home, located on North Henry Street close to Merchants Square, dates to the early 1900s. It is the recently-renovated Newell home showcasing period architectural features and furniture.

Tickets will be sold at the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center and the Williamsburg Lodge on December 6 from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm and on December 7 from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. During Tour hours tickets will also be sold at each of the Houses.
