History is made tangible as the Montford Historic District Tour of Homes makes it visible in architectural terms on December 12, 2015 from 1-5. Many of the homes in our historic district will be available for touring during this event providing ticket holders with a perfect opportunity to see these turn-of-the-century homes in full holiday splendor.
It is believed that the piece of real estate now known as the Montford Historic District was initially built and lived in by well heeled Charlestonians looking for a climatic escape to the oppressive heat that area is known for. The mountains of Western North Carolina, long known for healthful, fresh, cool mountain air became sought after and large, for the time in which they were built, homes began dotting street after street in this premium piece of land located so close to our downtown.
While At Cumberland Falls Bed and Breakfast Inn is not on the tour this year we have opened our home to this tour in the past. It is such a treat to see ticket holders arrive observing in awe the special architectural features present in these old homes. Built in hutches, bookshelves, walls, staircases and mantles showcasing beautiful, now extinct wood, high ceilings, boilers with the charm and sometimes creative beauty of old radiators, sleeping or wrap around porches and butler pantries.
Join our community this Saturday, December 12, 2015 for a bird’s eye view into the gracious, stylized and eternally gone period of days gone by at the Holiday Tour of Homes 2015. Tickets: $25. The likes of these homes will never come again. Call us for details.
