Home for the Holidays . . . in Joplin

Saturday | December 14 | 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

 Step back in time for a glimpse into turn-of-the-century Joplin with a Holiday Homes Tour of nine private historic homes.  Four of the decorated homes are in the Historic Murphysburg District on South Sergeant Avenue between 3rd and 6th Streets, three are in the North Heights Neighborhood a few blocks southwest of Columbia Elementary School and two are in the heart of downtown. 

 The tour starts at Unity of Joplin located at 204 North Jackson Avenue. The building, formally the Woman’s Club, is a local historic landmark.

 Unity of Joplin will also be on the tour. That is where you can buy a ticket or exchange your advance ticket for a commemorative booklet. The booklet includes the tour house addresses and a map. The doors at Unity open at 12:30 pm.          

 The event is presented by Historic Murphysburg Preservation, Inc., a non-profit organization that implements charitable and educational activities, which promotes and stimulates historic awareness throughout Joplin.

 This is another great event funded in part by the Joplin Convention and Visitors Bureau.
