The tours will be open to the public Saturday, Dec. 5 and Sunday, Dec. 6 with tours scheduled every 15 minutes from noon to 4 p.m.. They will start at the Brandville School, part of the OJHS complex, at 1133 Grasser St. (behind Fire Station #2).

The Dosch house, built by James Messer and his wife Lillian in 1875 for $1,200, has been described by the National Registry of Historic Places as the finest example of Italianate architecture in our area.
