Staff Report
News Tips:

The Historic Staunton Foundation is hosting its 37th annual Christmas House Tour this weekend.

Visit a wonderful selection of Staunton homes fitted for the season featuring each owner’s decorative collection and holiday style. The Eclectic Revival architecture of the tour homes reflects a 20th century romantic desire to emulate both European and colonial architectural precedents while incorporating modern conveniences of the period. Styles include a mixture of Queen Ann and Shingle, Tudor and Colonial Revival, a 1940s French Creole Revival, a 1950s Cape Cod and a 1960s Neoclassical Revival.

· 1315 N. Augusta St.
