									Perth Christmas Heritage House Tour

The Canadian Federation of University Women, Perth and District, will showcase
10 private homes in and around Perth, as well as the Perth Court House, during
their annual Christmas Heritage House Tour, December 7, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. All 11 sites are excellent examples of Perth’s heritage architecture. Seven of
the sites are within the historical town’s boundaries and date from the early
1800’s to 1939. Included is Haggart House, one of the earliest stone houses
built in the area, overlooking Perth’s beautiful Stewart Park.

Four historic houses included on the tour are in rural settings just beyond the
town limits. One of the houses was painted by renowned Canadian artist James
Keirstead. Included with your ticket is a map to all sites, and a brochure
describing the houses’ architectural styles.

No doubt touring will make you hungry! Lunch ($8.00) will be served at St. Paul’s
United Church, 25 Gore Street West, Perth. Or you can visit one of Perth’s
excellent restaurants or pubs. Don’t miss afternoon tea and cookies, served at
Perth’s newest hotel, Codes Mill Inn and Spa, 82 Peter Street.,

This is a chance to see Perth’s heritage architecture first hand, and enjoy small
town hospitality. All proceeds from the tour fund CFUW education grants.

Tickets are $25.00, available November 1st in person at Shadowfax, 4 Gore
Street East, Perth, and Rowats Flowers and Gifts, 40 Beckwith Street North,
Smiths Falls. For out of town orders please call Shadowfax, 1-800-518-2729, or
call Muriel at 613-267-2270.

The Canadian Federation of University Women is a voluntary non-profit
organization, committed to the improvement of the status of women and human
rights, and to the promotion of education. Last year’s Heritage House Tour netted
$12,000.00, which was awarded to area women continuing their education, and
to local libraries in support of literacy programs.
