Burlingame spreads Christmas cheer with holiday home tour

 John and Audrey Ross’ home at 141 W. Fremont St., Burlingame, is one of the homes featured on Burlingame Historical Society’s annual Christmas home tour.

The Burlingame Historical Society will host a holiday home tour, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023, during Burlingame’s Country Christmas celebration. Tickets will be available at Schuyler Museum and each home on the tour.

John and Audrey Ross and daughters Gabby, Karah, Maelee, and Reagan have lived in their 1889 Queen Anne Victorian home at 141 W. Fremont St. for four years. The family is rounded out with Annie the dog and Thor the cat.

John works as chief of police at Metropolitan Topeka Airport Authority and is in the Kansas Army National Guard. Audrey is a therapist at Christ First Counseling center.

The family enjoys spending time together and watching the girls play sports and dance.

The study and den is decorated formally with a classical tree; The living room tree is a “fun” tree done with the kids collected and homemade ornaments. The master bedroom is displayed as a “Cozy Christmas”, and the foyer is done in Santa Clauses.

A 1885 Victorian style house on the tour at 127 W. Seward St. belongs to Zak and Samantha Amos. Zak and Sam, with their son, Eivin, and daughter, Nora, have lived in their home more than two years.

The kitchen is done in earthy tones; the living room is dark Victorian.

Samantha is a respiratory therapist. Zak is a technician for Easy Ice, and a volunteer for the Burlingame Fire Department. The Amos’ enjoy camping, boating, carpentry, soap making, baking and home improvement. They are currently restoring the barn that housed carriages and horses in early days. The family pets are a dog and a cat, even though Zak says he is not a cat person, (the cat does not know that!)

Linda Ullery had her new home built at 435 W. Chase St. and moved in December 2022. She is retired and enjoys socializing, playing cards, volunteering to make mats for the homeless, and crafting.
