Ballard Historical Society will host their popular Classic Home Tour this Sunday, June 26, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The self-guided tour will take attendees to eight vintage Ballard homes built between 1892-1934.
“Go back to an era of solid craftsmanship, beauty, and style. See how an older home can thoughtfully integrate necessary updates while still embracing the scale and period in which it was built,” says Leonor Colbert from Ballard Historical Society.
The Ballard Classic Home Tour is the Ballard Historical Society’s biggest fundraiser. Funds raised allow the Society to take part in community projects, present free informative lectures related to Ballard’s History and maintain their extensive archives.
Locals can purchase $20 tickets online from Brown Paper Tickets or at the following local retailers (cash or check only): Ballard Public Green Market, Secret Garden Bookshop and Scandinavian Specialties.
Day of Tour Ticket sales and will-call will be open at 9:30 a.m. at Home Tour Headquarters, the Sunset Hill Community Clubhouse (3003 NW 66th St).
The tour does require walking and climbing stairs. Organizers apologize that the tour is not ADA compliant.
