Holiday House Tour scheduled for Dec. 7

Community News

The Burnside Civic Women’s Club will be hosting their annual Holiday House Tour Sunday, Dec. 7, 2008, 1 to 5 p.m.

Five homeowners have graciously opened their homes for the tour.

Proceeds from the tour fund the Louise Kiser Scholarship. This scholarship is given each year to an area college student who has completed at least one semester of college. Applications will be available at each house.

This year the houses include: Ralph Gibson Law office, Chateau de Clue, The Brown House (family home of J.T. Wilson), The Higgins House and the Frank House.

Ralph Gibson Law office is located at 304 West Columbia St., Somerset. Mr. Gibson’s law office had been a fixture in Burnside for many years but the new road construction claimed his old office. His new office in Somerset is in a renovated three-story house.

During renovation, many layers of wallpaper, paint and carpet were removed to reveal original hard wood floors, old time trim and a house just made for Christmas decorations.

Chateau de Clue, the home of Dr. Randy C. and Deanna Wahlman, is located at 1215 Shafter Shepola Road, Somerset. This home will make you believe you are in France.

Setting on a hill, the home is modeled after a French chateau. Once in the home, you will be amazed at the holiday cheer that includes 14 decorated Christmas trees.

The Brown House, home of the J.T. Wilson family, is located at 554 Ky. 790, Bronston. The house pre-dates the War Between the States and is an example of Tuscan Italian building. The house has a beautiful view of Lake Cumberland along with detailed landscaping.

The last two houses will both be in Villager Resort. Villager Resort has a Somerset mailing address but is in the Burnside city limits.

The Higgins House at 105 Villager Resort Drive, Somerset, will be decorated to entice you to stay and have your holiday party.
