Featured homes include a simple mill worker’s home remodeled into a charming Victorian-style cottage (1914), a Northwest-style farmhouse with fish-scale shingles and covered porches (1982), a dramatically remodeled Craftsman (1918), a colonial revival-style home with a gambrel roof (1890), a basic homestead (1905) and a former Catholic rectory turned residence (1894).

Tickets are $15 or $12 for age 62 and older and age 11 and younger. Tickets, which include maps, are available at Joyworks, Kusler’s Pharmacy, McDaniel’s Do-It Center, Speckled Hen, Annie’s on First, all in Snohomish, and Calico Corners in Mill Creek.
