The Champaign County Preservation Alliance (CCPA) is looking forward to the 26th Annual Historic Home and Garden Tour, and is excited to be visiting the Village of Saint Paris. The tour will be held June 23 & 24 from 11 A.M. - 5 P.M. in the Village.
Visitors will experience a showcase of assorted styles, sizes and architectural features throughout the homes. Included will be the "Kiser Mansion", a magnificent three story, 16 room house built in 1913 in the Neo-Classical style, a home repurposed as a bed and breakfast, a home featured on the Home and Garden TV show "Look What I Did", a home that is distinguished as having the first "motor shed", the first dedicated funeral home and the first three story home built in St. Paris. In addition, a former freight depot now housing the Pony Wagon Museum, will display an assortment of miniature pony-drawn carts, carriages and wagons. Saint Paris was once the world wide center of manufacture of these delightful vehicles. The Saint Paris United Methodist Church and the Covenant Lutheran churches will offer tours and refreshments, and the Saint Paris Library will offer special programs for the week-end. Don't miss the Evergreen Cemetery Chapel which is one of three remaining wooden Cemetery Chapels left in Ohio. It was also the recipient of a CCPA grant which helped support the restoration of the Chapel. Enjoy the private garden, visit the shops in the downtown, and experience small town living at it's best!
