IRON MOUNTAIN - The Pelletier Home on West E Street is one of the homes featured on the Zonta Tour of Homes. The event will be held from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9.
Proceeds benefit the Pink Ribbon Project.
This beautiful 5,000 square foot home was built in the late 1800s as a wedding present for the owner of the Sagola lumber yard.
The present and fifth owners are Mike and Connie Pelletier.
Mike worked at this house when he was 17-years-old and determined that some day he would own a home just like this.
Mike and Connie have restored every room themselves with great attention to detail, even adding the removed staircase off the kitchen. The crown molding (made by Mike) punctuates the rich paint colors and furnishings. They once lived in a new home in Marquette, and vowed never again to have one. As Connie stated, there was nothing to do. Their idea of a "fun night" at home is to work till midnight on some project.
A reception and special sales will be held from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Spread Eagle Garden Center.
Tickets are $15 in advance at Bond Decorating, Julia Rose Creations, Perina's Mata Brown Shoppe all in Iron Mountain, Maxine's Bridal Shoppe in Norway, and the Spread Eagle Garden Center in Spread Eagle Wis.

Ludington Street, Rosemary Ross, John and Joanie Richtig, Ken and Shari White, the historic Immaculate Conception Church and Italian Gardens (all on the North side of Iron Mountain), Steve and Sheri Mannigel in Spread Eagle, and the Spread Eagle Garden Center.
