BRIGHAM CITY -- A variety of homes will be included in the annual Holiday Home Show hosted by Civic Improvement Club from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday.
Featured will be two Brigham City pioneer homes, the 1860s Peter Forsgren home owned and restored by Karen and Scott Ericson at 59 S. 100 East, and the 1860s William Watkins home owned and restored by LeeAnn and Brent Jensen, 74 N. 100 East.
These two historically significant homes are located within walking distance of the Christensen Dance Academy, 58 N. Main, a building which played an important role in Brigham City's social life from the time of its construction in 1903, as well as nurturing the talents of Christensen sons who went on careers in dance and music. These three sites can be done as a walking tour with parking at Brigham City Hall.
Three other homes complete the tour, including a converted barn in Mantua. Tickets are a $5 donation per person (age 12 and up) and may be purchased at any of the buildings during the tour. Homeowners and club hostesses will be on hand at each location to guide visitors and answer questions.
A longtime tradition on the first Saturday in December, the Holiday Home Show is a benefit for the century-old Civic Improvement Club's community projects, as well as scholarships for graduating seniors.
