Highlands Museum and Discovery Center's Christmas Tour of homes

Part 2: Wheeler, Highlands, Hanni-J Ryan


ASHLAND — Hanni- J. Ryan


508 16th St.

It’s all about friends at this tour location, which houses business of Mark and Kelly Hanni.

“My friends July Runyon and Jennifer Runyon decorated the office,” Mrs. Hanni said. “Several other friends came together to help us, too.”

Friends have loaned the Hannis some of their collections to display. For instance, Sharon Brown’s 125 Santas can be seen here. Debbie Frazier’s angels are on exhibit, too, and there are Nativities from Pam Estep and Juda Lewis. She also has used dahlias grown by Judy Fannin, whose house also is on the tour.

Visitors can expect to see live greenery at this house, much of which comes from Mrs. Hanni’s parents’ farm.

The decor of the last room of the house is a recreation of the Hanni’s daughter’s wedding, which occurred this fall.
