GENEVA – SG Geneva/Scentimental Gardens will host a Holiday Home Tour of owner Debra Phillips’ historic 1850s house in Wayne on Nov. 29 and 30, the company announced in a news release.

The event is being held in celebration of 30 years in business. The tours will continue from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 29 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 30.

Luxury shuttle buses will depart from the business at 428 W. State St. in Geneva, traveling to Phillips’ house for the tour. Tickets cost $20. After the tour, guests will receive refreshments and a free holiday ornament.
