2018 Heritage and Holly Historical Home Tour

The Heritage and Holly Historical Home Tour has been a part of the Thanksgiving Weekend Tradition for many  years. Formerly a fundraiser for NWRAPS, it was given to Dove in 2017 because of our long association with neighborhood groups and because of the Anna B. Millikin Home, Shelter and  office space for Dove, right in the middle of the historic west end. 

This fundraiser will support all the programs of Dove - what a fun way to support to do that and to enjoy this holiday tradition!
