Samford Legacy League's - Christmas Home Tour
This Thursday is the Samford Legacy League's Christmas Tour of Homes. Three historic houses in the Birmingham, Alabama areas of Forest Park, Redmont and Vestavia Hills will be open for the Legacy League's 2nd annual home tour. Proceeds from the event will fund scholarships for deserving students who could not otherwise afford a Samford education.
Southern Accents is proud to be a sponsor for this event. Owner Garlan Gudger, Jr. attended Samford University for three years on a football scholarship. Samford is without a doubt near and dear to his heart. The tour of homes has significant meaning because it presents a rare opportunity to the public to tour several well known historic houses. Having an opportunity to walk through historic houses with notable backgrounds that have been lovingly preserved over the years is an event we are excited to promote.
Construction on the first house in this historic tour, the Walker home in Forest park, began in 1910 and was completed in 1912. This three story craftsman style fieldstone houses six fireplaces, different wood flooring on each level, beveled glass and loads of personality! The house is decorated in seasonal finery and ready to welcome visitors.
Holiday hors d'oeuvres will be served at the Westmoreland home, which is the second house on the tour. This house in Vestavia is the current home of Samford President Andy Westmoreland and his wife, Dr. Jeanna Westmoreland. The house, acquired in 2007 by Samford, features a downstairs ballroom and an incredible view of the campus.
The final house on the tour is the Simpson home in Redmont Park. All homes will be open from 10 am - 2 pm and 4 pm - 8 pm. Tickets are only $20 per person and can be ordered online through today by visiting http://www.samford.edu/legacyleague/ or can be purchased the day of the tour at the first home. Shuttle service is available. CLICK HERE for more details.
