The home of Kathryn and Chris Smith in the Houston Heights section of Dothan’s Garden District has the perfect window for a gloriously full Christmas tree.

Stretching from floor to ceiling, the old window shows off the tree the couple selected for their home this year. Keepsake ornaments that have marked the family’s time together adorn the tree, commemorating vacations and celebrating birthdays.

With a 3-year-old, an 18-month-old, and a third child expected in January, they decided to decorate a little earlier this year.

“Usually I’m an after-Thanksgiving person, but this year is all kind of crazy for us,” Kathryn said.

Their home will be among five homes on the Christmas Tour of Homes, a holiday event that makes its return this year after a hiatus of several years. Hosted by the Junior League of the Wiregrass (formerly the Dothan Service League), the tour will be held Sunday from 3-7 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at

Megan Henderson, president of the Junior League of the Wiregrass, said when the group transitioned from the Dothan Service League members searched through the service league archives for possible fundraising events to host. Records showed the holiday home tour had been successful but had not been held in years.
