Alexandria's Garden District Neighborhood Foundation is hosting a Holiday Tour of Homes to include four homes in the Garden District. 2014 Marye Street was the home of General and Mrs. Omar Bradley when they resided in Alexandria during the Louisiana Maneuvers. 2022 Albert Street was modeled after actress Cathleen Moore's Beverly Hills home and it is said that Long was an occasional overnight guest in this house. 1703 Polk Street is built entirely of glass bottles circa 1945. More than 3,000 bottles were used to construct the house, which was originally used as a gift shop. The house at 1924 Barrister Street has been in the same family since it was built 100 years ago. What began as a one-story planter cottage, is now a grand colonial home.
