RIDGEWAY — The Home for Christmas — Home and Church Tour in Ridgeway was a success. The event, which took place on a crisp but clear afternoon, drew locals and visitors to peek inside some of the oldest and finest houses and churches in Ridgeway.
Docents welcomed guests into five churches and homes for music, refreshments and history of the buildings and houses.
The tour included the Century House, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Ivy Veranda, Ruff Chapel Methodist Church, First Baptist Church of Ridgeway, Lebanon Presbyterian Church, Aimwell Presbyterian Church, The Hooten House, Tuckahoe and the Thomas Tea House.
Other events for the Home for Christmas Weekend in Ridgeway included a First Friday event at the local stores and restaurants, carriage ride tours, and the annual Ridgeway Christmas Parade on Sunday featuring floats from local churches and organizations, classic cars and Santa.
The Home for Christmas Church and Home Tour was a fundraiser for the annual Arts of the Ridge Festival which takes place in the spring and showcases the visual, performing and literary arts in the schools and community.
