Visit some of this holiday season's most enchanting historic houses in Lake Bluff.
Last Sunday's first-ever Christmas Home Tour exceeded attendance expectations, raising more than $6,000 for the Vliet Center for Lake Bluff History, which hosted the event. Participants embarked upon a self-guided journey through the decades, beginning in the late 1800s, of five Lake Bluff homes fabulously decorated by local merchants for the holidays. The event extended to a second day activities planned for the "It's a Wonderful Life . . . in Lake Bluff" celebration.
