F.Q. Story hosts holiday home tour

The F.Q. Story Preservation Association will host its 32nd Annual Holiday Home Tour and Street Fair Dec. 3-4. This year’s tour features charming historic homes on beautiful palm-lined Lynwood Street, west of 7th Avenue.

This lovely Tudor-style cottage may look like it’s placed in the British countryside or perhaps a quaint New England village, but in fact it can be found on this year’s F.Q. Story Holiday Home Tour and Street Fair, set for Dec. 3-4 (photo by Will Denney).

The F.Q. Story Historic District consists of 602 homes dating from the 1920s and featuring a mixture of architectural styles, including Spanish Colonial and Tudor Revival, English Cottage, Craftsman bungalows, Spanish Colonial and Neoclassical. Tickets are required to tour the home interiors, but are not required to stroll the neighborhood and enjoy the street festival.

The tour begins on Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. with holiday-inspired streets lined with luminarias and holiday lights. On Sunday in addition to touring homes, enjoy holiday shopping while visiting dozens of craft vendors and food booths at the F.Q. Story Street Fair.  Sunday’s hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Tickets are $15 each, or $14 with a non-perishable food item donation. The ticket booth will be located at 9th Avenue and Lynwood Street; advance tickets also are available online at www.fqstory.org.
