Historic Florissant Hosts Christmas House Tour

The Auguste Aubuchon House, circa 1800, will be the oldest home on Historic Florissant’s House Tour this year. It is located at 1002 St. Louis Street.

Historic Florissant’s House Tour returns this year with a collection of homes to fill you with Christmas spirit. The tour will be held on Sunday, Nov. 25, from 2 – 6 p.m. Tickets are $12 each and can be purchased at Dooley’s Florist or Korte’s, both in the 600 block of St. Francois, or at the Historic Florissant office in the Gittemeier House at 1067 Dunn Road.

All the sites on the tour are located in Historic Old Town, easily within walking distance of each other. The houses range in age from 212 years to 80 years, including some new to HFI’s tour. Most of the sites will offer light refreshments.

One lucky ticket holder will receive $100 worth of books on Florissant’s history. A ticket number will be drawn at 6 p.m. when the tour ends. The winning number will be posted on Historic Florissant’s website as well as at Dooley’s, Korte’s and the Gittemeier House. The winner will need to present the winning ticket to collect their books.
