“The annual Logan Circle Holiday House Tour is Sunday, December 4, 2016, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.
Plan to join in a tour of traditional and contemporary architecture and interior design, and the always warming Wassail Reception at Studio Theatre.
Imagine yourself inside a giant organ. No, not that kind of organ. A pipe organ. Now hold on to that thought. Each year neighbors and visitors have come away delighted by the stunning architecture, unique interior design, world-class art, and the wonderful company of fellow house enthusiasts. And this year won’t be any different. Well, it’s going to be a little different. As part of this year’s tour, The Church of the Ascension and Saint Agnes on Massachusetts Avenue at 12th Street NW, a Gothic Revival brick structure completed enough to use by December 1844, will be inviting guests into their new organ loft, and, even into the organ itself. It’s the perfect place to hear the story of how the new organ came to be, after its predecessor fell – thankfully not on a Sunday – into the pews below.
We can’t forget about the houses, of course. The self-guided tour includes eleven properties at nine locations, and yes, as always a Wassail Reception with refreshments, and raffle at the Studio Theatre located at 14th and P Streets NW. (more…)
