Letter: Historical Society first home tour well-received

To the editor:

Saturday, Dec. 7, was the perfect day for the first Beverly Historical Society Holiday House Tour! The tour featured seven properties, dressed for the holidays, reflecting Beverly’s history from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Included were six private homes and the historic home at Hale Farm, which was expertly decorated by Pamela Sherry-Landess of Carroll’s Florists.

Volunteers, including Society members and friends and Realtors from the lead sponsor, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Beverly office, greeted guests in each home. A post-tour reception, with delicious food catered by Chianti Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge, was held at the extraordinary Grand Salon on Wallis Street.

A heartfelt thank-you goes out to the businesses that supported us at this well-received event: Coldwell Banker, Beverly office; Chianti Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge, Coastal Move Management, Grand Salon on Wallis Street, Carroll’s Florist, Captured in Moments Photography, Prides Crossing Confections, Barter Brothers, Rose Hip Farm, Kane’s Flower World Inc.

And last, but certainly not least: Thank you to the wonderful homeowners who enthusiastically embraced the event and welcomed more than 100 guests into their personally decorated homes. We simply could not have done it without you! We look forward to the second Beverly Historical Society Holiday House Tour in 2014, and hope to see you at some of the many wonderful events hosted by the Beverly Historical Society throughout the year. Happy Holidays and many thanks!
