Hall House opens for Christmas tour Saturday

SALISBURY — The Dr. Josephus Hall House will be resplendent in its Victorian Christmas finery when the house museum opens for weekend holiday tours beginning Saturday.
Regular tours are held Saturday and Sunday — Dec. 10, 11, 17, 18 and 24 — from 1 to 4 p.m. A special candlelight tour is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Christmas Eve.
Admission for the weekend tours is $5 per person or $3 for members of Historic Salisbury Foundation. The candlelight tour is by donation.
The Hall House is located at 226 S. Jackson St. in downtown Salisbury. Although the house was built about 1820, the Victorian elements added by Hall in 1859 dominate the architectural and decorative style.
The house provides a beautiful backdrop for the Victorian Christmas décor. Swagged greenery, fruits and berries, antique toys, heirloom quilts and coverlets are all combined to transform the house and transport visitors back in time.
Each room will delight young and old alike, and many have made the tour part of their family holiday traditions. Christmas tours have been held every year since Historic Salisbury Foundation purchased the house in 1972.
