Home for the Holidays: A Victorian Christmas
The Hampton Heights Neighborhood Association is hosting “Home for the Holidays: A Victorian Christmas” December 1, 2011 from 5:00pm to 8:30pm at the Arthur Irwin home, 269 West Hampton Avenue, in Spartanburg’s Hampton Heights Historic District. The Irwin home went up in flames on June 18, 2010 and destroyed the roof, attics and tower. I didn’t know the owners, Jim Newcome and Vivian B. Fisher, but they are part of my extended network of friends. I recall watching the WSPA-TV footage and witnessed the anguish expressed by their close friends and neighbors on Facebook.
Join the Association tonight and celebrate the restoral of the neighborhood’s flagship residence! Tickets are $25 per person and include a tour of the home, hors d’oeuvres and wine. For tickets visit www.hamptonheights.org or visit Upstate Forever at 100 East Main Street Spartanburg, SC.
LOOK at this Spartanburg Herald-Journal article, Association photos and WSPA footage:
Take a look at the WSPA-TV news video and you’ll appreciate both the loss and the excitement in having this historical home restored to its original grandeur.
