Annual Wickenburg home tour planned for Nov. 3

[Source: Joani Mangold, The Sun] -- Residents and visitors alike will not want to miss this year’s Las Senoras de Socorro’s 27th Annual Home Tour on Saturday, Nov. 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. While four homes are normally featured, this year there is a fifth home. It is quite unique, but limiting in its location and access, that it is featured as a “bonus” home. It is easy to see that this “bonus” home is an entertainer’s masterpiece. This impressive turreted and domed structure (pictured) is located north of Wickenburg, off Highway 93 and one mile northeast on Rincon Road. The drive up is steep, and parking will be limited, but vans will take visitors the rest of the way up to the estate. Be advised that this home is not recommended for handicapped or people with walking limitations.

Tickets for this years home tour are only $15.00 and available at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum or the Wickenburg Community Center on Saturday, Nov. 3. Admission includes entrance to the Desert Caballeros Western Museum the Holiday Market at the Community Center. The Holiday Market features the traditional rum cakes and other culinary arts, attractive booths filled with crafts, jewelry, books, ornaments, and the unique boutique. Begin the day with coffee and muffins available in the morning and lunch sold in the Community Center. For additional information call the Home Tour Chairs, Monica Lambert 684-3429 or Dorinne Dobson 684-0945.
