Lake County Historical Society to host luncheon

RELEASE DATE: January 15, 2010

LEESBURG — The Lake County Historical Society is hosting a luncheon on Friday, Jan. 22, at 12 p.m. at the Mote-Morris House, located at 1195 W. Magnolia St. in Leesburg.

The luncheon will include a buffet with beverage and dessert for $12. After the lunch, the group will tour the historic home. The Mote-Morris House was built in 1892 for eight-term Leesburg mayor Edward H. Mote and his wife, Lucretia. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

The Mote-Morris House is an example of late-Victorian architecture. It is an interesting combination of styles, including its four-story turret and two-story bay on the east side of the house. It is one of only a few original Leesburg residences in remaining. The house was built shortly after the town was platted. The Mote-Morris House is available to rent for personal functions, such as weddings, by calling (352) 728-9898. The historic house is also open to the public on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Reservations for Lake County Historical Society luncheon are to be made by Wednesday, Jan. 20. For more information or reservations, call the Lake County Historical Society at (352) 343-9890.
