The Historic Folsom Holiday Home Tour debuts 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Dec. 7-8, with proceeds benefiting the Folsom Historical Society and the Murer House Foundation.

Seven historic homes will be displayed, decked out in their holiday finest. Homes on the tour date back to the mid-1850s.

"Of the seven stops on the tour, the museum is one and an old historic Catholic church," said Mary Asay-Skiles, one of the event organizers. "This tour is not only for those who enjoy holiday decorations, but history and architecture ... as well."

Refreshments will be served at the museum and some Sutter Street merchants will offer shopping discounts to those who have tickets from the home tour.

Tickets are $15. For more information, call (916) 985-2707 or visit
