The House Tour: December 14
Victorian and post-Victorian houses--including two homes of Penn people--will be featured in the University City Historical Society's annual house tour Sunday, December 14, from 1 to 5 p.m. While boughs of holly deck the halls, the seasonal decorations share the festive spotlight with recent renovation work, including a just-completed kitchen and a unique redocorated carriage house. Everything from sentimental Victorian Christmas heirlooms to contemporary decor will be on view, showcasing the University City's diversity and eclectic style.
