Every three years, the Ballard Historical Society showcases the solid craftsmanship of Ballard homes. The 2013 home tour was a success, and they’re doing it again this year!
Mark your calendars for Ballard Historical Society’s Classic Home Tour to be held on Sunday, June 26, 2016. This year’s slate of nine vintage houses were built between 1900-1931. The homes will be open for public view from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. that day as a fundraiser to benefit Ballard Historical Society, a non-profit.
These well-maintained homes will draw you back to an era of solid craftsmanship, beauty, and style. Some on the tour exemplify the thoughtful integration of an older home’s necessary updates while still embracing the scale and period in which the house was built.
$20 tour tickets will go on sale in early June. For more information, keep an eye out for updates on their Facebook page and website.
