Rutherford County Historical Society holds holiday house tour fundraiser Dec. 3-4

Published 8:01 pm Thursday, December 1, 2011

The Rutherford County Historical Society will host a holiday house tour at the home of Dot Carnegie, 117 S. Mitchell Street, Rutherfordton, N.C. on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., and again on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 1 – 5 p.m.
Both floors of the Colonial-Revival style home, built in 1928, will be open to visitors. Carnegie’s parents, John and Lyna Carnegie, purchased the house in 1931.
After touring the home guests will be invited to share refreshments of hot cider, coffee, homemade cheese straws, cheese biscuits and cake squares at tables placed in the backyard.
A table with several silent auction items will also be displayed, and several other items will be for sale.
The event will raise funds for the restoration of St. John’s Church, an antebellum church building in Rutherfordton that was damaged by fire last spring. Tickets may be purchased at the door during the event or from historical society board members.
