Built in 1868 by a man named John L. Miller, Brett and Alyssa Rissler's home, located at 7261 N. Co. Road 275 W., is a wonderfully decorated 2,232 square feet county home just outside the small community of Turner, west of Brazil.

A Victorian Parlor Organ, made in the early 1900's by the Packard Co. out of Fort Wayne, Ind. is a focal point in the antique collection at the home. The two story home has five bedrooms and one bathroom that welcomes all who enter to experience the simple elegance of country charm.

"This house is a timeless treasure in an area that could easily be overlooked by many people," Alyssa said.

The unusual inlaid wood floors throughout the house make this home a beautiful spot on the tour, but don't forget to look up at the beauty all around.

Once you've completed your historic tour, remember there will be old-fashioned cakes and punch served at the Clay County Historical Museum in honor of its 25th Anniversary in conjunction with the tour.

Tickets for the Meridian-Forest Historic District's 4th Annual Historic Home and Landmark Tour on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. cost $5 each and can be purchased at any of the tour sites during the day of the event. Advance tickets can also be purchased by calling Veda Bussing at 448-8595 or Scott Tillman at 446-7136.
