The rural holiday-ranch style home of Jerry and Betty Williams was built in the 1970s by Jerry’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence ‘Dutch’ Williams. Jerry and Betty have combined their own Christmas decoration collections with those of his mother, Vivian, who is well-known for opening her Carmi home at Christmas time.

Holiday House Tour

The historic Francis M. Parish Heritage Home at 500 W. Main, built in 1900, recently opened as The Social House.  Owned by Marge and Charlie Pfister and Julie and Sonny Shearer, The Social House is a Bed and Breakfast which also offers catered meals and other social events in a private, elegant setting.  The house was extensively restored in the 1990’s by the late Ed Finch and his wife, Pat.
In 1883, Charles and Lucy Crebs-Berry received the 306 Third Street home as a wedding gift from Lucy’s father, the Col. John M. Crebs. The home remained in that family through several generations. It was later owned by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Summar, Mrs. Robert Brown, and Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Harrington. Kenny and Becky Conner purchased the home this year from the Robert J. ‘Pud’ and Dorothy Williams estate. 
The holiday-decorated home of  Phil and Maryann Stocke at 301 Cameo Lane was built by Bob Randolph in 1955 in a new subdivision at the south edge of Carmi. The Stockes have been collecting Christmas decorations for over 20 years and are well known for their extensive Christmas displays.
