Historic Salem, Inc. will hold its 32nd Annual Christmas in Salem Historic House Tour this weekend.

“Join us as we revisit a familiar and beloved neighborhood of the Christmas Tour,” a flyer for the event says. “See the charming homes and stately public buildings that give the streets of this historic district their elegance.  Learn about the designers who shaped the architectural landscape and then head to the downtown for delightful dining and shopping.”

Santa Claus will also make his annual arrival on the roof of the Hawthorne Hotel at 5:30 p.m. today.  

The Salem Fire Company is expected to assist him with their ladder truck. He will proceed from there to the Museum Place Mall to hear the wishes of children. Music will be provided by Salem's own The Dejas.

The following is the schedule for this weekend’s Salem Historic House Tour:
