CORINTH – The Verandah-Curlee House, one of Corinth’s National Historic Landmarks, will be open to the public at no charge from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, to coincide with the annual Corinth Home and Garden Tour which benefits the historic home.

The home has been closed for two years due to deterioration. The exterior structural restoration, roof and painting have been finished, and plans are underway for the interior repair and décor, electrical and plumbing upgrades, out building and landscape improvements. Plans for the interior will be shared with visitors over the two-day period.

This home is significant to Corinth’s heritage tourism project underway by the Siege and Battle of Corinth Commission and the National Park Service. It will not be open for viewing again until the major interior work is finished.
