Marion Metz was one of the homeowners whose home was featured on the Town & Country Belpre Christmas Tour Sunday. Metz highlighted a lifetime of collecting throughout her house.
The homes on the Belpre tour will include the Gant residence at 1426 Boulevard Drive, the Wilson residence at 1015 Blennerhassett Ave., the Church residence at 512 Blennerhassett Ave. and the Metz residence at 1505 Putnam Howe Drive.
The Mike and Brenda Church residence at 512 Blennerhassett Ave. has been featured on the holiday tour twice before. Decorations will be primarily in Victorian themes, and more of the two-story home will be open to visitors on this year's tour.
The Victorian-style home was built in 1898 by Bradley Stone and was for many years as the home and office of a well-known Belpre physician.
