The Women’s Club of Milton will present a lineup of eight homes and three public venues festively decorated for its annual Milton Holiday House Tour, set for 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. Dec. 8.
Featured this year is a Cape Cod-style home with a personal airplane hangar on the property, complete with airplanes decorated for Christmas. Tour guests will also visit the mid-20th Century Milton Post Office recently repurposed into an artist’s home and studio, and a classic 1901 renovated Queen Anne-style home.
