Virtual Holiday Tour of Homes event extended until January 9

The second annual virtual tour of the homes of the Ormond Beach Historical Society has been extended until January 9.

The annual house tour, held in video format since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is generally the Historical Society’s largest fundraiser. This year’s tour, according to the OBHS website, features six homes in the Ormond Beach area, at dusk and decorated for the holidays. Homes range from as old as 1897 to as modern as 2018, with an “eclectic mix of design styles,” and as small as 400 square feet up to 14,000 square feet.

Among the houses featured is the Nathan Cobb Cottage on Orchard Lane, which was built from the sinking of the Nathan F. Cobb in 1897. The house is preserved and is owned by the Ormond Beach Historical Society.

The 1904 “Sunpatch” cottage, with its two fireplaces and original details, as well as the Rowallan House, which was built around the same time and at one point its owners entertained John. D. Rockefeller within its walls.
