Chappell Hill Christmas Home Tour

The air is cool and crisp in beautiful Chappell Hill today as I type. That’s right it’s almost December and we are celebrating with the Christmas Country Home Tour on Saturday and Sunday, December 14 & 15th and you’re invited to view some very special properties.
The Myrtle Providence House built in 1845 has a sweeping front porch. The home is filled with gorgeous antiques and decor. Walk through a gracious one acre garden, complete with cottage used as a Bed & Breakfast that features a five foot stain glass window.
T&L Ranch has been lovingly turned in a classic Chappell Hill ranchette featuring black Angus cattle and their mascot, Merle a stunning Longhorn steer. You’ll enjoy this home with it’s wonderful style, promising to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Summerhill sits on a spectacular hillside and features three homes. One of them is a Texas farmhouse replica and another a restored late 1800’s home. Come and delight at the special vintage pieces, family heirlooms and country French classics. A real treat will be viewing the many quilts made by nationally acclaimed quilt makers from Alabama. Don’t miss a chance to see these truly wonderful pieces of American history.
The Chappell Hill United Methodist Church is one of the finest jewels Chappell Hill has to offer. The original church built in 1851 and was rebuilt after the 1900 Galveston hurricane. Take note of the original pews and the Texas pine wood walls built by Henry Christen Brandt. The stained glass will take your breath away and leave you inspired by the quiet beauty. The Sunday school children gave the church the picture over the altar of the Last Supper in the late 1940’s. You’ll be so glad you came to spend some time with us in Chappell Hill!

Now, naturally I’ll do what I do best…not make dinner, but make reservations or in this case order up some delicious tamales. Come see me in the Rock Store for some treats to warm your tummy. I will have homemade chili, freshly baked cakes and cookies. Don’t worry I’ll have all the fixings for chili pie too! Now that sounds gooood.
Iced tea and flavored coffee will also be available.
I will open at 9am and be selling tickets and will have maps on hand. Don’t be scared away by the fact that I am going to make some cookies. As many of you may know, I have a room in my home that has a cooling box and some sort of device that gets really hot. Pretty sure it’s called a kitchen. No worries, the recipe says it’s so easy a five year could do it, so I’m good. Ha.
Please do call me for more information at 979-203-0815. Look forward to seeing you.
Pre sale tickets are available at the Bluebonnet House in downtown Chappell Hill. Or visit www.chappellhillhistoricalsociety.com for all the details.
