This beautiful home is set out in the country and back off the main road. The Sutherlands have invited guests into their home to share their Christmas decorations with the community.

United Methodist Church — Main Street         
Taylorsville United Methodist Church was established Jan. 12, 1833. From 1833 until 1841 the local Baptists and Methodists shared The Meeting House on Garrard Street. In 1841, the Methodists purchased land from the Wells family and began construction of the original structure shortly thereafter. Over the years, several renovations and additions have occurred. During the winter of 1913-14, the floor, side walls, and roof of the sanctuary were raised three feet after years of exposure to severe flooding.  Additional changes include construction of the parsonage and education building in the 1950s, a major interior renovation of the sanctuary in the 1990s, and construction of a fellowship building in 2003.
The pastor is the Rev. Charley Hatfield.

First Christian Church — Main Cross
The church congregation has decorated its church for your holiday enjoyment. Pastor Bill Dunning has baked cookies for refreshments and has brought in his private collection of nativities for you to view.  

Participating business open houses — The Red Scooter, Creekside Florist & Gifts and T & R Antiques will also host open houses as part of the home tour.
