"Home For The Holidays" Allows Folks To Tour Historic Homes

By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Folks in Bangor got to take a walk back in time Saturday.

Five historic homes were included in the annual home for the holidays tour sponsored by the Saint John's Episcopal Church.

Guests at each home received a pamphlet describing the historic and significant details of the home.

The Bangor Area Children's Choir was also on hand to visit each home to sing some Christmas favorites.

"It's been nice to be a part of this. It's a nice fundraiser and it's fun for people to come through these beautiful homes in Bangor and see some of the workmanship that's here. It's a pretty rare gem in this world of ours," said homeowners, Jenelle and Bill MacDermott of Bangor.

All proceeds benefit the St. John's Episcopal Churches outreach programs.
