Foundation presents 28th Christmas Holiday House Tour
Oak Grove United Methodist Church hostess Cinnie Cobbler, center, serves Russian Tea to Christmas Holiday House Tour participants Saturday. This is the 28th such tour presented by the Mount Airy Restoration Foundation. It continues today from 1 to 5 p.m. Visitors to the church learned about the history of the church which was founded in 1858.
This gown and lithograph of England’s Queen Elizabeth is on display in The Uptown Gallery of the Robert Smith House on North Main Street during the Christmas Holiday House Tour. Officials at the gallery said the gown was purchased in France by Joseph and Earline Heath King after “Joe” was commissioned to paint a portrait of the young queen. Earline wore the outfit as a model to allow King, known professionally as Vinciata, to complete his work. They estimate the gown is more than 300 years old.
