Lincoln Terrace Homes Set for Tour

Article excerpt

The Harn Homestead and eight Lincoln Terrace homes will be open Dec. 10-11 for the neighborhood's annual home tour. Many of the homes will reflect this year's theme, "A Victorian Christmas 1889-1994."

The homes will be open from 2-7 p.m. each day. The event will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, with a presentation of the Poinsettia Tree at the State Capitol Rotunda and entertainment by the Exultation Bell Choir and the Southeast High School Choir.

The U.S. Grant High School Choir will perform at 2:30 p.m. that day at the Harn Homestead Museum, 313 NE 16th St. Christmas crafts also will be available for children.
