Washington, Georgia Annual Christmas Tour of Homes & Colonial Dinner Set for December 12 and 13, 2008

Washington, GA (PressExposure) August 08, 2008 -- /1888PressRelease/ Washington, Georgia, is a unique town, an untouched gem of Georgia history. Unscathed by the War between the States, but right in the middle of Civil War history (Jefferson Davis signed and announced the articles dissolving the Confederate States of America in Washington in the Spring of 1865), Washington has more Antebellum homes and buildings than any other city in Georgia. Many of them, not open to the public any other time, will be open for the Christmas Tour of Homes.

Virginia Lee King, in charge of this year's Tour, said today:

“This event has been the feature event of the Christmas season in Washington, Georgia for many years, and this year's Tour will be better than ever! We have a number of outstanding private homes opening their doors to the public, most of which haven't been on any house tour before this Christmas Tour.

“It shapes up as an enchanting weekend in Historic Washington for the annual Christmas Tour and Dinner! The weekend begins Friday evening with a romantic Candlelight Tour of Antebellum and Victorian Washington. Stroll down our lovely streets and visit private homes dressed for the season and warmed by candlelight.

“On Saturday, tour the private homes and museums included in our Town & Country Tour. Enhance your experience with a ticket to our Champagne reception and multi-course Colonial Dinner graciously served in one of our elegant historic homes around town. The dinner homes are not on the regular Tour, so you can add another historical gem to your itinerary.”

Washington offers a charming variety of Antebellum Bed and Breakfast Inns, an historical hotel, and motel accommodations to meet every taste.
