Marion County Hosts 18th Annual Historic House Tour

Posted: Updated:

People from four different states came to tour nine historical homes in Marion County, Saturday. They came for the Marion County Historical Society's 18th annual Holiday Historic House tour.

The self-guided tour takes visitors back to the 1800s. The tour starts at the Marion County Museum and continues to historic houses throughout Marion County.

One building that's a stop on the tour is the People's Temple on Adams Street.  It features stained glass windows that date back to the 1830s.

"Of homes that we find, that are unique and interesting. Not only for Fairmont but anywhere in the United States." said Dora Kay Grubb, the President of the Marion County Historical Society. "In fact we have some that you couldn't even find out West because of the age. Most of them are decorated for the holidays and all of them have a history."

Most houses on the tour this year were in Fairmont.

The Marion County Historical Society will be having a Christmas Open House at the Museum in December and other activities through out the year.
