The Piedmont Newnan Hospital Auxiliary will be sponsoring their 25th Candlelight Tour of Homes on Friday, December 7th from 4-9PM. This year’s tour will be highlighting 8 homes throughout three Historic Districts in Newnan.
College-Temple District noted for its parks, schools, churches and tree lined streets will showcase the Glover-Trezevant Home at 45 College St.; the Kookogey Home at 38 Temple Ave., the Achee Home at 42 Temple Ave.; the “Casa Bella” Bed and Breakfast at 51 Temple Ave., and the Hallman Home at 50 Jackson St.
Greenville-LaGrange District with grand homes of many prominent Newnan citizens will showcase the “Major Long House”.
Cole Town District named for the R.D. Cole Manufacturing Company whose architectural woodwork, trusses and water towers are still recognized worldwide will showcase the Frederking Home at 87 E. Broad St. and the Renno Home at 101 E. Broad St.
Area businesses including Design House, Farrago, Gillyweed, Grannie Fannie’s, Murphey’s Florist, Paper Moon Productions, Red Door Interiors, The Perfect Poppy, PSS Signs and Glass, and 34 Madison Design Studio will assist in decorating the homes.
The Major Long House at 21 LaGrange Street will be hosting refreshments. This Antebellum style home from the 1800’s has been meticulously restored and is winner of the 2004 “Georgia Trust Award”. Area businesses including “A Taste for Homemade”, Contemporary Catering, Let Them Eat Toffee, Redneck Gourmet, and Newks will be showcasing their culinary delights as well as homemade goodies from our Auxiliary.
Proceeds from this event will be directed towards a $150,000 pledge the Auxiliary has made to the hospital for the establishment of a “Healing Garden”. In the words of Henry David Thoreau… “Nature is but another name for health.” Healing Gardens located in a hospital setting have been attributed to relieving stress, speeding recovery and increasing staff retention.
