Home tour in Anamoose Sunday
The third annual Tour of Homes in Anamoose will be held Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m.
Featured on the tour will be the homes of Shirley and George Schnelbach, Connie and Mike Rudnick, Debbie and Richard Koble and Sage Hill Bed & Breakfast, the home of Jackie Fix and Brad Michner.
In addition to the Tour of Homes, there will be a festive dessert and beverage bar and soup and bread supper featuring knoephla, hamburger and wild rice soups, as well as white chili, all served at the senior center. In addition, there will be a holiday baked goods sale, Christmas decorations sale and other vendors on site. Guests do not have to tour to partake of the bake sale, supper, dessert and beverage bar or any of the other activities.
Sage Hill Bed & Breakfast was originally the White Township School, which operated from 1938 to 1968. It has been extensively remodeled and furnished to be used as a bed and breakfast.
The home of the Kobles is a two-story house from the turn of the 20th century that sat empty for many years. It was extensively restored this past year and the owners moved into the house within the past few months.
George Schnelbach, who grew up in Anamoose, and his wife Shirley, retired to Anamoose only a year ago. Their one-story house was built during the 1930s and features a drive-under-the-house garage. Shirley will be displaying a collection of holiday villages she has made over the past 20 years.
The Rudnicks have built additions and remodeled their early 1920s home several times during the 29 years they have lived there. Connie and her daughters will be displaying gingerbread houses and holiday cakes they have made for the home tour.
