Because of the weather, the second annual Holiday Tour of the Houses of Worship in Hagerstown has been rescheduled until Thursday, Dec. 27, from 4 to 8 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau. The CVB has produced a brochure, which is available at the Downtown Visitor Welcome Center, and also online here: The brochure has a map, and a historical description of each house of worship.

Docents will be available for historical and architectural interpretation, and music is provided at some of the churches.
