The homes of Lafayette Square are renowned for their old St. Louis beauty, and that's just on the outside. Once a year a select number of residents welcome people into their homes to see the first-floor interiors, which are decorated for the holidays. The Lafayette Square Holiday Parlor Tour
features access to ten homes and the holiday market, which features handmade goods and treats. You may have heard that trolleys are all the rage now, and one will be running a circuit of the participating homes to help you see all ten homes in the allotted time. The tour takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, December 9, in Lafayette Square (Mississippi and Lafayette avenues; www.lafayettesquare.org)
, and tickets are $20 to $25.
