This year's tour features four area residences decorated for the holiday season. The K-State President's Residence on campus is full of history including updates to the Eisenhower bedroom. The Amanda and Eric Purdom residence on Poyntz Avenue is a historic home that has been expanded over the years and features casual classic décor.
