The event will be 1-5 p.m. Saturday.

Homeowners and sites on the tour are:

* Robert and Charlotte Feldman, Clark Run, Highview Estates, which was built in 2003. This will be their first Christmas in their new home.

* Lancaster United Methodist Church on U.S. 27, across from the Old Jail, was built in 1896.

* Owsley House, historically known as Pleasant Retreat. It was the home of Gov. William Owlsey and Simeon Anderson. William Owsley was elected governor in 1844. In 1837, he sold Pleasant Retreat to Anderson, who was a state representative and U.S. congressman.


* Owsley Carriage House, which is a gathering place for many local activities.

Proceeds from the tour will be used in the community of Garrard County. The Lancaster Woman's Club provides a $500 college scholarship each spring, sponsors the community blood drives and supports the Owsley House and many other community projects.
