The 18th annual Holiday Home Tour was a lot of fun!  The tour began at the beautiful Coxhall Mansion. From there participants toured four gorgeous homes in Carmel: the 1999 Indy Dream Home, the oldest residence in Old Town, a charming ranch home on Main Street, and the historic McShane Home on Range Line Road.

We’d like to thank all those who attended, and we hope you enjoyed it and will come back again next year! A special thanks to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this year’s tour the best so far!10848054_878060602225410_7532904616793942686_n 10154388_878067598891377_2802270727695252565_n 10404252_874319842599486_5504920431226236868_n 10411202_878073595557444_8426170434084326407_n 10425482_873407476024056_5407390638436874339_n
