NASHUA, NH — Rekindle the magic of the season with a tour of five Nashua homes decked out for the holidays, a free wine tasting at Fulchino Vineyard and complimentary refreshments and music at the Hunt Community.

Yes, the Symphony NH Holiday House Tour is at hand, scheduled for December 7 and 8 from Noon to 4 p.m. The tour, proudly hosted by Friends of Symphony NH, is an annual tradition welcomed each year by hundreds of tour goers.

This year, the tour of five homes includes two Nashua North End Victorian homes, each a delight with rich historic detail and creative remodeling for modern-day living.

85 Concord Street was originally built by the General Manager of Nashua Manufacturing, Captain Elijah Shaw, after he retired in 1889. The home sports four fireplaces, a grand staircase and will be graced with blooming orchids courtesy of the New Hampshire Orchid Society.  It is decorated for the holidays by Gloria Henry, owner of Glorious Possibilities, a great source for décor of all kinds. If you like this home you’re in luck, it’s currently offered for sale by Berkshire Hathaway.

A Berkeley Street home, recently remodeled by its young home owners, is decorated for the holidays by Mary Turner, a certified Redesign expert. Another house on the tour is owned by artist Sarah Roche and is filled with her work and creativity. The gracious home of Steve Negron, currently running for the  U.S. House of Representatives in the 2nd District is on the tour along with the post and beam home of Krista Lehoullier, owner of Amelia Rose Florals.

Tickets are on sale at a variety of outlets for $17 or online at symphonynh.org. Tickets will also be available at the door on tour days for $20. 85 Concord Street is a good place to start.

Ticket outlets include Amelia Rose Florals, Anne’s Florals & Gifts, Barn in Bloom, Brookdale Fruit Farm, Flower Outlet, Scontsas Fine Jewelry & Home Decor, Fortin & Gage Flowers & Gifts, Frederick’s Pastries, Glorious Possibilities and Fulchino Vineyard.

All proceeds are donated to Symphony NH, the state’s premier orchestra, planning now for their 100th anniversary in 2023 as active participants in the local cultural scene.
