Little River Arts Council hosts Tour of Homes Saturday and Sunday

Mentone will celebrate fall with the annual Tour of Homes sponsored by Little River Arts Council. The hours are 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday and 12-3 p.m. on Sunday. The cost is $10 and the money helps fund the Council's mission to promote and support art in the region. 

Here are the reviews of the homes:

Eight homes will be on tour. On the Western brow a European style (French influence) home with antiques and artifacts is open. It features a mural by local artist Jimmy Frazier behind a dramatic staircase. Stone View is another home with the magnificent valley view. This home has the feel of something new anchored in the past. It was built using local artisans and craftsmen. The stonework, beautiful interior and outside spaces are stunning. The handsome stone gate will be open for guests' visit. 

On the Western side of the mountain, Longview Cottage is a showplace for local artist. This home overlooks Shinbone Valley with overlooks, comfortable chairs, and fire pits outside; or enjoy the view from the newly built 56 feet long screened porch. The porch features furniture built by Jeff Rymer and antique pieces. Inside the owner has art by Scott Thomas (Happy Art), Howard Finster, Lucy Mitchell, Neil Whitt, Andrea Brannon, Wayne Hostetter and others. 

There is a historic house (1920's Bruce house); newly built artist's house with porches galore; a former restaurant being restored for a private home; Windy Hill Farms (they will give a tour of the farm) and the wonderful Camp Juliett Lowe is having an open house for the tour. 

These homeowners will welcome guests to get a glimpse of the Lookout Mountain town and area. Town Hall will be open where guests can make a bid on art and items for the silent auction.

For information go to or call Sandra Padgett at 256.418-2879.
