Walking tour on Sunday, December 2nd
11/24/2018 ~ by Lorrie L. Shaw
The Aces Youth Home (ACES), will hold its first annual Holiday Tour of Homes in Jasper. Presented by Piedmont Mountainside, this year’s walking tour will take place on Sunday, December 2nd from 2:00 until 7:00 pm and will feature five decorated homes on South Main Street in Jasper.
Another featured home will include the Jasper landmark known as The Roper House now owned by Luke and Katie Copeland. The home is located on eight acres at 422 South Main Street. Luke and Katie purchased the home in 2013 from the Roper Estate. After completing renovations, they moved into the home in 2015.
A sprawling mansion, respectably appointed with columns and chimneys of Georgia Marble masonry, the old home rest under tall trees, set back from Main Street at the end of a long driveway. Luke and Katie continued to incorporate Georgia Marble into their renovation. The home was built in 1906 for the wealthy A. W. Davis as “The Davis Cottage”. Dr. J. S. Golden (dentist) and his wife purchased the home in the 1930’s from Davis. Dr. E. A. Roper and his wife Elizabeth Morrison Roper bought the house in September 1944 from Dr. Golden.
Tickets may be purchased online at acesyouthhome.org or from an ACES Board member or Community Bank of Pickens County or Jasper Drug Store. Online tickets will include a $1 convenience fee, and tickets purchased the day of the tour will be $30.
Free shuttle service will be available from First Baptist Church, Jasper United Methodist Church, behind Mountain Education Center (former Jasper Middle School) and behind Revive us Again. Parking in public lots downtown will also be available.
Food and drinks will also be available for purchase in the green space.
