Over the past weekend my mom, grandma, and I did the annual Marietta Pilgrimage. The pilgrimage allows you to go into 6 homes in a certain historic district around the Marietta Square in Marietta, GA. It is a neat way to get ideas for your own home for Christmas and see inside the different homes. Also you learn a little bit about the history of the area as you go. This year the district was the Church/Cherokee National Historic District and the houses were built between 1900 and 1940. Also another treat is that every year they have a home set up as a Bistro that people can get lunch at and use their facilities this year it was a home called Ivy Grove that was built in 1843. It is a beautiful home and I was very excited to get to see inside it. When you are inside the homes on the tour you are not allowed to take pictures inside. These are private homes and we have to respect the home owners privacy. There are docents in each room to tell you a little bit about the family and the items in the room as well giving information about the home. Here are a few pictures that I took along the tour. If you do something similar where you are please let me know!
