The first suggested stop is at Myersville Town Hall, 301 Main St., where the tour map and brochure will be available, along with historical displays, refreshments and restrooms.

Each church interior, altar and choir space will be beautifully decorated in keeping with its Christmas tradition. Church docents will be at each church to guide visitors and answer questions.

All of these churches have their roots in small congregations formed in the 1700 or 1800s. Their buildings have changed over time but still reflect a strong sense of community and location.

If the snow emergency plan is in effect in Frederick County on Dec. 10, the tour will be rescheduled for Dec. 11 at the same time.
