Some call it the best-kept secret in St. Louis. Others only know that it’s home to an award-winning farmers market and the oldest organic farm in Missouri. Either way, Ferguson is one of the area’s most beautiful historic communities, and its exceptional collection of unique vintage architecture will soon be on display!
From 3-7pm on Sunday, December 2, the city will once again open its doors for the annual Twilight Christmas House Tour, inviting the public to view 11 homes that have been fully decorated for the holidays. The houses date from the 1890s through the 1960s, and represent a wide array of architectural styles, from Queen Anne Victorian & French Provincial to Storybook Tudor & Mid-Century Modern.
Tour highlights include this 1930 Storybook Tudor with exquisite stained glass and a Juliet balcony overlooking the living room, and this mid-century ranch, a one-of-a-kind modernist gem designed by architect Jon Mac Goy.
Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 the day of the tour, and they include a free pint of fresh local beer at Ferguson Brewing Company. All tour proceeds benefit needy local families through the Ferguson Caring League.
For the first time, ticket holders can complete the tour either by car or bike! The Ferguson Bicycle Shop is leading two bike tours – one in daylight hours, the other after dark. To sign up, call (314) 315-4940. There is no additional charge for the bike tour.
Tickets for the Twilight Christmas House Tour are available through December 1 at Paul’s Market, Ferguson City Hall and Corner Coffee House. From noon to 4pm on December 2, they’ll be available at Pearce Neikirk & Partners Realtors, 427 S. Florissant Road, 63135. For more info, call (314) 521-5002 or (314) 359-5927.
Hope you can make it!
