Tour of Homes celebrates 40th anniversary

It’s an opportunity to show your civic pride and pride in your home as well.

The Ironton Women’s Cooperative Club is getting ready for its 40th annual Tour of Homes. There are five abodes on the list so far and chairwoman Sharon Bradshaw is looking for five more to add to the list.

“We’re always looking for historic homes and people are so gracious to let us come. We understand this is a big undertaking and we appreciate it,” Bradshaw said. “This is a chance for people to share their ideas about how to beautify a home with creativity.”

So far, the list includes The John and Joy Milar residence at 901 S. Sixth St., the Cheryl and Phil Willis residence at Fifth and Pleasant streets, the Chris and Molly Delawder residence at Fifth and Adams streets, the John and Sue Adams residence at 415 Jefferson St. and the pool house belonging to Richard and Denise Paulus at 110 Valleyview Drive in Coal Grove.

The final stop is always the Lawrence County Historical Museum at 506 S. Sixth St.

Bradshaw said co-op club members are always on hand at each location throughout the tour to help with guests.

The proceeds from the tour is used throughout the year to fund various education and community programs.

Tickets are $15 and are available by calling any co-op club member.
