The 2016 Tour: You’re invited!
The Union Square neighborhood invites you to our 31st annual Christmas Cookie Tour. The park and the homes will all be decorated to celebrate the season. We offer you a special afternoon to stroll through our National Register of Historic Places district, and through the many fine 19th century homes opened for your pleasure. If you are new to our tour, you may be surprised to find that while we are very consistent in our views of proper Victorian streetscape, we vary widely in our concepts of interior decor. Our homes run the gamut of style from country to contemporary, with eclectic coexistence as a common rule.
You may also be surprised to find an extremely strong sense of community among our “family” of neighbors. We all know one another, and we work together – not only in rebuilding our homes, but also in rebuilding this fine neighborhood. This tour, which benefits historic preservation and local charitable efforts, is but one example of the spirit that makes Union Square a great place to live… and a great place to visit.
Please join us in celebrating the season with this wonderful event. Hundreds of families have already made the Union Square Christmas Cookie Tour part of their holiday tradition. As a result, many of them return each year to see the new additions and the ongoing progress throughout the community. As one visitor observed, “It’s just not Christmas until we come to Union Square for the tour. It really gets our family in the spirit!”
