Holiday Home Tour

Join us for the 2017 Highland Christmas Home Tour.

Two days, two different tours of some of the most interesting and beautiful homes located in Highland and Fairfield Historic Districts.

Individual tours are $20 per person or $15 for Highland Restoration Association or Fairfield Historic District Association members. A package deal for both tours is $35. Discounts for association members are only available with prepaid tickets. 

Step inside beautiful homes filled with the warmth of the holidays and the grace of the bygone eras. Our holiday tram – compliments of State Fair of Louisiana and Morgan Buick GMC – will transport you the magical homes of the Fairfield Historic District on Saturday, Dec. 9. These homes include a circa 1912 residence filled with heirlooms of multi-generation Shreveport family, a Queen Anne cottage, 1905 Victorian known for its Christmas decor and a renovated 1923 cottage. Don’t miss pop up shops of Highland artists in some of the homes. And be sure to make a stop on Robinson Place to bid on our Highland Holiday Tree sponsored by Great Raft Brewing. The highest bidder at the end of the night will have this extra special tree boxed up a delivered to their home the next day.
