Over 200 tour Willcox historic homes

[Source: Arizona Range News] -- The inaugural Willcox Historic Home Tour, held January 14-15, was an "overwhelming success," said Louise Henderson, the tour's organizer. "Over the weekend, 223 tickets were sold, five couples opened their historic homes for tours, 23 volunteers graciously greeted guests, 22 middle and high school musicians performed, and 572 cookies were eaten."

Henderson said guests came from as far away as Canada, Oregon, California, Texas, Scottsdale, Tucson, and Green Valley, with many people attending from the Willcox area. "We hope other historic home owners were inspired as we look forward to the 2007 Willcox Historic Home Tour," she added.
