December 12, 2013 — The University of Wyoming Women's Club Holiday Home Tour is scheduled Sunday, Dec. 15, from noon-4 p.m.
Tickets cost $10 in advance and are available at Ace Hardware and Turtle Rock Coffee. Tickets also are available the day of the tour for $12 at the featured homes.
From a new custom-built home to a historic tree-area Hitchcock home, the public will have the opportunity to view a variety of housing styles, all decorated with holiday cheer.
"The Holiday Home Tour is our main fundraising event for the year, with the proceeds providing for a scholarship to assist nontraditional female students to attend UW," says Kristen Klaphake, the tour's co-chairwoman.
This year's stops include a contemporary-designed home that features interesting pieces from Thailand. A 1980s home on the tour was beautifully and creatively remodeled into an attractive, modern space. The tour also includes a historic tree-area home -- designed by renowned Laramie architect Wilbur Hitchcock -- that has been beautifully renovated.
"This year, we have a selection of beautiful homes decorated for the holidays,” says Klaphake. “Taking the tour is a great way to bring in the season and to appreciate the architectural home designs we have here in Laramie."
