This year’s show home is the historic Christian Theological Seminary Hospitality House located at 1042 W. 42nd Street. The magnificent English colonial home has ties to the prominent Holliday, O’Neal and Dye families. In 1921, W.J. Holliday, chair of the W.J. Holliday Co., decided to move his family to the suburbs to escape the “noise and soot” of the city. The home was built in 1929 as a wedding present for his daughter Lucy Holliday O’Neal and her husband Perry, parents to legendary Golf Course Architect Alice Dye.
