Ligonier home tour marks 10th year
The 10th Ligonier Home Tour, benefiting the Ligonier Valley Historical Society, the Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor, is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 28.
This year's tour will feature some unique Ligonier homes.
Designed with exterior details of a decades-old home, one 2012 in-town homeowner built the home's color palette around a chandelier.
One home features turrets, archways, angled roof lines and a circular driveway with a view of the Ligonier Valley below.
Another home features additions with great attention to detail. The home overlooks the rolling hills surrounding Ligonier. The property includes an historical log home reminiscent of Little House on the Prairie days.
A re-purposed nearly century-old Victorian mansion has been transformed from a private residence, to hospital with a chapel, and currently as a stately boutique hotel with cafe.
An ivy-covered Rector home features an inviting garden gate with privet hedging and a vintage slate roof. Its colorful garden of mixed perennials and annuals will steals the show.
Tickets are $25 each if purchased by Sunday. Order online at www.LigonierHomeTour.org or call the Lincoln Highway Experience museum at 724-879-4241.
