TOUR OF 4 FILLMORE-AREA HOMES TO BENEFIT HOSPICE.
SANTA CLARITA - A Sunday drive in the country this weekend could be more scenic than usual, especially if you stop and take a tour of beautiful homes along the way.
The 18th annual Heritage Valley Home Tour, sponsored by the Santa Clarita Valley Hospice, will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The tour will feature four homes in the hills and orchards surrounding Fillmore and Bardsdale, plus the Fillmore Trinity Episcopal Church.
The church, a Ventura County historical landmark built in 1901 in Hueneme and moved by wagon in 1933 to the corner of Second and Saratoga streets, has a unique gingerbread construction. An ice cream social will begin at noon at the church with sundaes provided by Baskin Robbins. A silent auction will follow.
The Home Tour allows visitors to view homes ranging from structures built from the early days in Ventura County through the present while cruising through the Fillmore-Bardsdale area.
The country home of Bob and Pat Morris, at 1249 Pasadena Place, is a remodeled Craftsman home in Bardsdale, while Shirley Wright's historic family home is a refurbished orchard cottage at 3262 E. Telegraph Road, just off Highway 126.
The post-earthquake handiwork of Josephine Myers and Richard Schmittou makes their Fillmore home at 239 Third St. a combination of historic architecture and recent additions, and the dream home Larry and Judy Dunst just moved into at 1405 Oak Ave. in Fillmore overlooks the valley below.
Proceeds from the Home Tour and silent auction will benefit the Santa Clarita Valley Hospice so it can continue to care for the terminally ill in the area.
Tickets are $12.50 in advance or $15 on the day of the tour, and can be obtained by calling the hospice office at (805) 525-1333.
Tickets are also on sale in Fillmore at Mirage Clothing, 326 Central Ave.; in Santa Paula, at The Mill, the Santa Paula Times and at the hospice office at 133 N. Mill St.,; and in Ventura County at Garden Memories, 424 E. Main St., and at Rusty Nail Furniture, 419 E. Main St.
