Senoia Historical Society offers second ornament

The second commemorative Christmas ornament by the Senoia Area Historical Society will be available during Sunday evening’s Candlelight Tour of Homes sponsored by the Senoia Downtown Development Authority.

The Dec. 8 homes tour includes refreshments to be served at Senoia Area Historical Society's house/museum, located at the corner of Couch and Pylant Streets. The society's theme this year will be "Trains, Gingerbread & Sweets."

The second commemorative ornament for the society as a fundraiser is a reproduction of an original watercolor of the Veranda Historic Inn Bed & Breakfast in Senoia by artist Angela White. Once again, the ornaments have been the vision of Susan Norton, a local creative crafts person, who worked along with a talented staff. 

The ornaments will be available for a $5 donation during the Candlelight Tour on Sunday, Dec. 8, and afterwards at the museum during regular operating hours of 1 - 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The Veranda — formerly the Hollberg Hotel — ornament joins the Senoia Area Historical Society Headquarters/Museum ornament of 2012 as a growing series featuring historic buildings in Senoia. 

These ornaments make lovely Christmas gifts or adorn a package for residents and visitors alike, note society members.
