The annual Christmas Home Tour sponsored by the Wayne Theatre is set for Saturday, Dec. 3. The 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tour of homes decorated for the holidays in Waynesboro is sponsored by EA Homes.

This year’s tour takes place in the historic Tree Streets neighborhood, beginning at the Wayne Theatre, where you pick up your official pass for the day and booklet and can enjoy the beautiful decorations in the Wayne Theatre and take a tour.

“The tour is a chance to experience Christmas traditions and decor of some of Waynesboro’s finest when local residents put out the welcome mat for WTA’s annual Christmas Home Tour,” said Tracy Straight, the executive director of the Wayne Theatre.

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 on the day of the tour.

This year’s tour includes:

  • Wayne Theatre, 521 W. Main Street
  • Droughman Home: 552 Chestnut Avenue – This two story Colonial Revival house of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction was built by C.G. Quesenbery (a Waynesboro Circuit Court judge for many years) and his wife, Esther. Christmas display includes an angel tree, as well as two additional trees throughout the house, a collection of Byers Choice Carolers, German nutcrackers and smokers, and an array of Mary Eckinrode Santas.
  • Orlando Home: 428 Maple Avenue – This ornate Queen Anne home was built in 1891 by Carrington Hubbard and originally named the Fry House. Look for ornaments created by the children and a little of their native New England throughout the home.
  • Myers Home: 797 Oak Avenue – Built as a wedding gift in 1940, this home is an example of mid-century Tree Street architecture. An eclectic collection of art is combined with a number of nutcrackers and nativity sets to celebrate the holidays.
  • Daniels Home: 645 Maple Avenue – This Dutch Colonial home was built in 1929 by Thomas Menefee. Look for a special collection of antique Santas and teddy bears as well as other antiques and primitives.
  • Evans Home: 640 Oak Avenue – Christmas is a special time at the Evans home with 7 year old Liam leading the way. The family has collected period American folk art and American country antiques. Their home is decorated with live greenery and vintage decorations.
