Home tour set for Greencastle

Friday, November 7, 2008

GREENCASTLE -- Theta Chapter, Delta Theta Tau Sorority, Greencastle, will host its 26th annual Holiday Home Tour Sunday, Nov. 23.

Tour hours are 1-5 p.m., and admission is $8 per person. Tickets are available at Treasures on the Square, Ambler-Hill Florists, Almost Home Tea Room, and Eitel's Flowers and Gifts, all of Greencastle. Tickets may also be purchased from any chapter member and at each home the day of the tour.

The homes on this year's tour are all located within Greencastle and features the home of Depauw University's new President, Brian W. Casey (The Elms, 125 Wood St., Greencastle).

The other homes include Jim and Loretta Maxwell, 133 Hilltop Lane, Nate and Ashley O'Hair, 321 N. Arlington, Jim and Susan Gillen, 528 Anthony St., Scott and Lynda Dunbar, 713 E. Walnut St., and the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, 110 E. Larabee St., where refreshments will also be available.

Each home offers a different view of architecture through the years -- from the DePauw President's home, built in 1925, through the 1950s and 1960s and up to the Gillens' home, built in 2007.

The tour also offers perspectives of how older homes can be "updated" through remodeling and/or more modern decorating techniques yet still remain comfortable and inviting. Homeowners will showcase their favorite holiday decorations as well as antiques and collections, including Longaberger Christmas baskets, Boyd's Bears, Waterford crystal ornaments, Disney characters and ornaments, Coca Cola memorabilia, House of Hatten Santas, Bels Nickle woodsmen Santas and Woof Poof figurines.

All proceeds from the tour will be used to support the Delta Theta Tau Scholarship Fund and philanthropy donations to community programs such as SPARKS, the Summer Enrichment Program, Clothe-A-Child, Johnson-Nichols Health Clinic, the Giving Tree, The Smoke House, Mary Allison Children's Home and the Reality Store.
