“I am very excited about this year’s tour and the five unique homes being featured,” says Carla Foreman, chairman of the Holiday Home Tour for the third year. “Thanks to the gracious homeowners and our many volunteers and sponsors for their generous support.”

It is Georgia-Plantation in style and character, with white columns and welcoming porches. Completed in January 2014 by local builder Bryan Lendry, the home features many authentic historic elements, including a front door dating back to 1876.
For the second year in a row, a special ornament will be offered for sale. It is a brass image of the Hunter home and is $15. In addition, this year’s raffle items will be on display. The ornament and raffle tickets will be sold at the Hunter home.
This year, the Holiday Home Tour is sure to put everyone in the mood for the holidays. The annual event is the Amelia Island Museum of History’s biggest fundraiser.
