John and Connie Coats 
802 North Justice Street 
Our love of the ocean and our time spent in California is reflected in our home at Christmastime and throughout the year. Our main Christmas tree in our living room is a Palm Tree decorated with ocean themed ornaments and a small tree at the top of our cabinets also holds beach items. 

Our bedroom has a Native American theme as we both have this heritage and display it in small ways. 

Our upstairs has another beach themed bedroom with a large fishnet holding precious pictures of our families enjoying the ocean. Also, once again, a Palm Tree holds our ornaments. 

Welcome to our home, we designed it to enjoy with our families and friends. 

Jason and Wendy Wallace 
612 North Main Street 
Merry Christmas from the Wallace family. We are pleased to invite you into our home during this special season. Christmas is a time to celebrate with family and friends. 

Built in 1890, our home is a two-story treasure. While it has been completely remodeled, the original charm remains. This is our third Christmas in this home and we tend to decorate more traditionally with lots of lights and red and green. 

We can’t wait to welcome you into our home and we are truly honored to be a part of the Christmas Walk this year. 

Craig and Carol Munson 
310 East Daggy Street 
We are delighted to welcome you to our home! This home is believed to have been built in 1901 by a local banker. However, it is often referred to as the Boylson House by the locals. This is due to the fact that the Boylson family owned the home for generations until we purchased it in 2011. Since then the home has undergone major renovations both inside and out. 

The home features the original oak staircase in the foyer, crown and base molding throughout, and ten-foot ceilings. Modern amenities have been added making every effort to retain the traditional character of the time period in which it was built. 

Christmas is a special holiday in our family and we feel blessed to call this beautiful residence “home”. We hope you enjoy your time visiting this holiday season!

Chuck and Lynn Appleby 
301 East Houghton 
Chuck and I have owned three new homes and two older homes. We’re attracted to the charm of our older home. Our present home is the Cresent Plan by Sears. It has been extensively remodeled by both us and the former owner.

Having three bedrooms and two bathrooms; it still has the small home cottage feel that we love. 

We have enjoyed decorating for Christmas and hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. 

Steve and Amy Fiscus 
107 East Scott Street 
We have a family tradition of bundling up and heading out to a local Christmas tree farm the day after Thanksgiving and cutting down the “perfect” tree to place in our living room to welcome in Christmas as we await the birth of Jesus.

At 102 years old, our house features the original hardwood floors, woodwork, doors, doorknobs, and windows throughout most of the house. 

Our dining room houses the original built in China cabinets, complete with leaded glass doors and a butler’s window with a leaded glass panel that leads into our recently renovated kitchen. The living room and office have a double wood-burning fireplace that is perfect for cold, snowy days. High ceilings with large crown molding throughout the main portion of the house add to the charm. Five bedrooms including a remodeled master bedroom in the attic and two and a half bathrooms complete our house. Thank you for joining our family as we welcome Christmas 2019. Merry Christmas! 

Santa’s Bakery and Workshop
900 South Washington Street 
Come and shop for the holidays at Santa’s Bakery and Workshop. The Douglas County Area Junior Women’s Club and the TWC Juniorettes will be having a Christmas bake sale. Also Santa’s Elves have been busy making crafts that can be purchased. This new event is sure to be a fun place to stop.

Christmas Tea

Cecil and Nancy Smith 
400 South Main Street
We are happy to have you visit our home as part of the “Homes for the Holiday” Christmas tea. 

Our house was built in 1920 as a private residence, but it was later a funeral home for many years. It was also a bed and breakfast during the 1990’s. 

It is now a home and event center with in-house catering.

All ticket holders are welcome to stop by for some delightful desserts and pastries made by the Tuscola Women’s Club members, of which I am a part. There will be a limited number if House Walk tickets available that guests may purchase at the tea the day of the event.
