Old Allegheny Victorian Christmas House Tour in Allegheny West
Allegheny West will be hosting this year’s Old Allegheny Victorian Christmas House Tour on Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10. The tour features six restored Victorian homes plus the historic Calvary United Methodist Church, famous for its beautiful Louis Tiffany stained glass windows, all decorated to celebrate a Nineteenth Century Christmas.
These personally guided tours afford a rare opportunity to glimpse a by-gone era and experience the warmth of the season in a truly old-fashioned style. Most homes in Allegheny West are over 100 years old and Victorian in architectural style. Lavishly decorated for the holidays, they recall the late 19th Century birth of the traditional American Christmas: elaborately decorated mantels, towering Christmas trees and pine, holly and mistletoe on stairs and chandeliers.Tour guides will explain Victorian holiday traditions and provide the history of Allegheny West and its famous Nineteenth Century residents.
At the end of your tour, you can visit one of the world’s largest toy train museums – a private collection of hundreds of colorful train sets from the early 20th century, with many of them rolling through enchanting miniature villages. There is an additional charge for the train museum.
