The Corn Hill Neighbors Association is excited to present the winners of the 3rd Annual Fairy Houses Tour which took place at the 2015 Corn Hill Arts Festival on July 11 & 12, 2015.
Over 65 original Fairy Houses were submitted to the Tour by individuals, teams and families for visitors to the Festival to view. Over 7,000 people toured the display and voted for “The People’s Choice Award”. This year’s winner is the Marshall Family for their intricately designed house.
Utilizing a carved out tree stump, this three story house delighted visitors with a table set for six replete with bowls of berries. The living quarters boasted a fireplace with a stone chimney and a spiral staircase leading to the third floor nursery. The Marshall Family also enjoys designing “fairy frocks”.
In addition, nine winners in three categories, “Most Whimsical”, “Best Use of Natural Materials” and “Most Unique” were chosen. Builders used a variety of natural materials including gourds, seashells, maple saplings, bark, stones, oak tree seedlings, and various dried fauna.
These beautiful houses were on display at The Strong National Museum of Play.
Funds raised during the Corn Hill Arts Festival through sponsorships, vendors and exhibitors are disbursed by the Corn Hill Neighbors Association for a variety of community needs. Festival funds are also used for protecting and promoting the historical character and beauty of the area. The Corn Hill Neighbors Association encourages cultural diversity, and strives to foster good relations not only within the neighborhood, and its surrounding communities as well.
