“The Terrace” will be featured home on Holly Springs Christmas Tour

One of the highlights of the “Christmas in Holly Springs” tour on Dec. 3 and 4 will be “The Terrace.”

The original part of this house was built in 1842 with additions in 1857 and another in 1920.

The house is timeless, pervaded with a sense of elegance. It was built as a townhouse, close to the avenue, and is adorned with a captain’s walk on the roof. 

Heirloom antiques prevail throughout the house and a recent renovation by the Callicutts has created a sunny, airy look thoroughout the house. The house will be decorated in Christmas splendor and will include a large tree glittering with a thousand lights.

The house has been owned by several families. The Callicutt Srs. bought the house in 1940 and it is now the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Callicutt Jr. Before that it was the home of the Mullens, Robisons, and Bradburys.  

Don’t let this be another year that you say to yourself that you wish you had bought a ticket to go to the tour. Get your tickets now and plan to have a wonderful time with your family and friends. The tickets are $25 now per person and $22 for groups of ten or more.

Now if you procrastinate and wait until after the 25th of November you will pay $30 for all tickets. So don’t wait and get yours now. This tour will never be duplicated and what a wonderful gift for that special person on your Christmas list.

Call the Museum today for your tickets, 662 252-3669, or come by at 111 Van Dorn Avenue, Holly Springs.

See you there!
