From Perry County to Cape Girardeau County to Bollinger County, the area is embellished with churches rich with history and personality. Wander out through the countryside of the area and enjoy the Christmas Country Church Tour December 21-22.
On this self-directed tour, you can see the churches decorated for the season, and enjoy refreshments and music at most of the locations. The event is free of charge, but a free will donation collection at each church will be offered for charity.
Come hear a brief history of the approximately 24 rural and small town churches each over 100 years old. Three of them are no longer operational, but have been preserved for historic purposes. A great way to enjoy the holidays with visiting family, you can celebrate the reason for the season with this tour of some of the area's neatest and culturally rich historic places. Please note that in case of appreciable snow or any ice, the tour will be cancelled.
All of the information and a map can be found in the event brochure.
