Historic Denton will host its annual holiday home tour from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2. 

Tickets cost $20 for adults, $5 for students.

The home tour is presented by Historic Denton, a nonprofit organization that promotes the preservation of the Denton Historic District. 

The annual tour helps fund historically-styled street lamps, which cost $2,000 per pole. Historic Denton pays for the poles with the money it raises, and Denton Municipal Electric installs and maintains them. The historic district is in the midst of adding 36 of the street lamps. 

Seven downtown homes will have their doors open for the tour, and docents will be in each home to give information about the homes' history:

The home of Natalee and John Warren, 1109 Congress St. 

The home of Emily and Hayden Mooney, 1019 Egan St. 

The home of Michelle Lynn, 1401 Egan St. 

The home of Lynde and Jamie Oswold, 612 Pearl St. 

The home of Maya and Pete Leptuch, 616 W. Oak St. 

The home of Erika and Jeff Wegenka, 619 W. Oak St. 

The home of Paul Meltzer, 1914 W. Oak St.
