Every year in December, a group of people in Frederick graciously open up their holiday decorated, historical homes to the public. Come join us for our second year attending this event as we get into the holiday spirit.

This year, the tour encompasses eight victorian houses along 2 blocks of Clarke Place. Each house will showcase the history of the house as well as the residents' individual holiday touches. This is a self-guiding tour, which means we can go to each house in the order and pace we choose. For more information on the houses, click here.

But before we venture out, we will enjoy good food and conversation together at Brewer's Alley, a local MOC hangout.
