Jewell, 150 years old, is celebrating her Sesquicentennial during 2020. The first event of that year-long celebration is the Jewell Sesquicentennial Historical Home Tour to be held on Sunday. Participants should gather at the Jewell Community Center at 2 p.m.

At the Community Center, tour members will find a variety of refreshments, meats, cheeses and chocolate fountains. Information about other Jewell Sesquicentennial events will be available and the Palmer Museum will be open. There will also be live entertainment provided by Butch and Annette Burks.

The tour will visit five homes in Jewell. These homes, all constructed in the early 1900s, were built or owned by families intertwined in Jewell's history. The homes enjoy some similarities but each has its own unique features and history. As the tour moves around the town, guides will be presenting information about these and other homes of interest.

Transportation, which is provided, will be assigned as participants arrive at the Community Center. Though there is transportation, participants should be prepared to walk short distances as the tour progresses.

Homes to be toured are those owned by Damon and Shelby Bohnert, Jason and Jessie Eilert, Cindy Traump, Chuck and Judy Gibson, and LeRoy Bourbon.

Cost of the tour is $10 with tickets available at Jewell's City Office at 308 Delaware. Tickets will also be available at the Community Center. The Jewell Sesquicentennial Committee and the Jewell Chamber of Commerce sponsor this event.
