The Guyton Tour of Homes will be held Tuesday, and Beulah once again will be a location on the tour.

The former home of the late Dr. Willie Grier Todd, now owned by the Guyton United Methodist Church, will have both levels open to the public this year.

Participants will enter the front of the home to decorations of poinsettias. They will then go through the formal living room where they will be able to view Todd’s Christmas tree.

The dinning room table has been decorated the same way Todd had decorated it in the past with trees made of fruit as centerpieces.

The sitting room has a tree with baked gingerbread ornaments and cranberries strung around it.

All four of the upstairs bedrooms have been decorated for the occasion.

The home was built in 1884 and purchased by Todd’s grandfather, the Rev. Ransom Govan Cartin, in 1912. Cartin named the home Beulah.

After Todd passed away in 2006, Guyton United Methodist Church purchased the home and is currently working to restore the structure through the Beulah project.

The Beulah project is focused on restoring Beulah and expanding the ministries of the church.

Plates featuring a sketch of Beulah drawn by Guyton artist Louise Streed will be sold at Guyton United Methodist and Beulah during the tour of homes. The proceeds of the sales of the plates will go to the Beulah project.

Churches on the tour will not be charging the public to view, and Beulah will be free as well.
