Caine house on home tour (11/13/11)
The Michael and Georgeann Caine home, 105 Hilltop Lane, is one of five houses on the 29th annual Delta Theta Tau Holiday Home Tour set for Saturday, Nov. 19 from 1-5 p.m. The two-story home, built in 1965, was designed as a Federal-style home but a later addition of the front porch and columns gives the exterior a more colonial appearance. The interior features antiques, original family artwork and other keepsakes from the Caines' families as well as 30 years of Christmas collections. Peeler pottery pieces and a tea cup collection from Georgeann's grandmother are noteworthy. Georgeann has decorated one bedroom as her great-grandmother did, including an antique bedroom set from the 1880s and wedding ring quilt. A big dark dresser in the back bedroom reportedly dates back to the Civil War. Admission to the home tour is $8 per person. Tickets are available at Eitel's Flowers, Treasures on the Square, Ambler-Hill Florists, Almost Home and Curves.
