Sunday, December 7th's 30th annual Logan Circle Holiday House tour was just the way to warm one's imagination on a frigid day. It certainly left visions of fireplaces and granite countertops dancing in this GLDC Editor's head! Despite the below-freezing temperatures, neighbors and open-house fiends from across the area came out to view this year's selection of featured homes. The seamlessly coordinated open house tour spotlighted historic East Logan and ended with a delightful Wassail reception at Long View Gallery at the up and coming intersection of 9th and N, where galleries, nightspots, and even a holiday tree nursery have sprung up over the last year. GLDC Culture Editor's Pick of the Tour was an 1891 restored Victorian on 10th street. This structure's lofty ceilings, rich wood floors, and cozy fireplaces made the home truly admirable, and an excellent specimen of urban family living. Purchased in 1987 for $56,000 as little more than a shell, the entire house was refurbished using $50,000 in salvaged pieces from eBay and antique stores. Greg's List salutes the event chairs and looks forward to future engagements at all of our favorite venues in the neighborhood. We are pleased to have supported this Logan Circle fundraising event, benefiting other community endeavors.
