WASHINGTON, Ga(WRDW/WAGT) -- Historic homes in the town of Washington are gearing up for their time to shine during Historic Washington-Wilkes Christmas Tour of Homes, but it takes a lot of work to get these century old homes in tip top shape.
It's not easy being pretty, especially when you're about to celebrate your 200th birthdayCommittee Chair for the Christmas Tour of Homes, Sharon Jones, says preserving these historic homes is a race against time.
"We're going to lose our houses from the 1700s and 1800s if people don't modernize them and take care of them."
Some of these homes have been around since before the Civil War, it can be tough to keep up with them"One leak in the roof-it can be weakened and lost," Sharon says.
If there is ever a problem, you call someone like Christine GordonShe is a restoration contractor and enjoys the challenges of work like this"Nothing is square and nothing really matches up, so as you go around you have to keep re-leveling -- making things work," Christine says.
