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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
