Elm Springs is a testament to brotherly love. Two wealthy brothers built this home for their sister as a gift! Set afire during the Civil War, the home survived and will be open for the 2015 Home Tour!

The James K. Polk Home in Downtown Columbia is always a favorite of the Maury Christmas Home Tour. This is the only surviving home, other than the White House, that James K. Polk called home.

    • Hi Lisa, there are several great restaurants in downtown Columbia that may be able to accommodate you. Our suggestions would be Puckett’s, Square Market, or Venue Tenn (10). If these do not work, Legends on the corner of Hwys 31 and 50 may be a possibility. Thanks for your interest and we hope to see you in December!

    Are there an unlimited number of tickets or does it ever sell out? Can I safely assume there will be tickets available when I drive up from Huntsville on Dec. 5th or is there a way to buy tickets online? I went on the tour back in 2006 and loved it!

    How long does it take to see homes ? What would you consider arriving too late?
    Is this a self-guided tour by car or a walking tour?

    • Hi, I would suggest getting your ticket at 9am and starting your tour then. It is self-guided, on your own. Some of the sites are a few blocks apart, but the rest are miles apart. You will have to drive to the sites.
