Banker's House's Christmas Reveal Dec. 2

It all began a few years ago when the folks at The Banker's House were asked to participate in the Cleveland County Arts Council's Holiday Home tour. Since The Banker's House is not a residential "home," it was decided to ask area businesses, organizations and individuals to decorate different rooms of the house for the tour. The next year, The Banker's House was again on the Art's Council tour and used the same plan for decorating that had been successful the year before.

"By that third year having the house decorated and open to the public had become a new tradition, even though the house was not on the official 'tour' that year," says Banker's House Executive Director Carolyn Jackson. "So, we decided to do it again and to call it the 'Christmas Reveal.'"

This year's Christmas Reveal will take place on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022, from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m.

"It has now become an annual event, with community members eager each year to see what new d├ęcor will be selected for each beautiful Banker's House room inside," says Jackson. "Every year brings new and returning decorators to put their creativity to the test in adorning this historic house."

In addition to the amazing decorations, the Christmas Reveal also includes live music, delicious homemade desserts and festive drink selections. The house's antique piano, which has recently been restored, will be played by several local musicians to provide the live music for this year's event.

Tickets are $10 each and includes a ticket for a free beverage (desserts are included in the ticket price). Area journalist and author Joe DePriest's book, Voices in Time: Stories of The Banker's House, will be on sale for a discounted rate of $30 each or two for $50.

For those who can't make it to the Christmas Reveal, Jackson says there will be three open house events later in the month where people can walk through the house, the grounds, and the carriage house/barn. Visitors to the open houses will also enjoy light refreshments. The open house dates and times are: Tuesday, Dec 13, 2022 from 10 a.m.-1p.m,; Thursday, Dec. 15, 2022, from 2-5p.m.; and Friday, Dec. 16, 2022, from 4-7p.m. The same tickets can be used for any of the events.

"This fun, festive event is a great way to officially usher in the holiday season with friends, food, libations, lovely music and lots and lots of eye candy!" says Jackson.

Tickets are available at the Cleveland County Chamber Office or by calling 980-404-0096.
