Classic Home Tour

Our 2016 tour was held in June of this year. The Tour — held every third year — celebrates residences of unique character and modern livability.

IMG_2575_croppedTour participants took time out for history in late June of this year.

We highlighted eight vintage houses built between 1892-1934. Returning to an era of solid craftsmanship, beauty, and style, these older homes thoughtfully integrated necessary updates while still embracing the scale and period of their construction periods.

Every three years, BHS holds a self-guided tour of several vintage Ballard homes. Our homeowners really showed off their homes, and we thank them for making their hard work and efforts. Thanks also to the following retailers for selling tickets: Ballard Public Green Market, Secret Garden Bookshop, Scandinavian Specialties.

Are you interested in volunteering for the next tour? Please contact our Classic Home Tour Coordinator, Lesli Cook at 206-992-7010.

The Tour enables BHS to take part in community projects, present free informative lectures related to Ballard’s History, and maintain extensive archives.
