Snohomish plans classic homes tour

The classic homes of a storied city will be on full display from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, during the Snohomish Historical Society’s 41st annual Fall Home Tour.

The self-guided tours will find visitors walking through Queen Anne homes, bungalows and other quaint spots in the town, which once served as the county seat. Each site will be staffed with people familiar with the building’s history.

Tickets are $15, or $12 for those 62 and older or 12 and younger. Proceeds will benefit the Blackman House Museum and the historical society.

Tickets can be purchased now at the Speckled Hen, McDaniel’s Do-it Center, Kusler’s Pharmacy and Gifts, Joyworks or Annie’s on First. On the day of the tour, tickets will be sold at the Waltz Building, 116 Avenue B.

For more information, call the society at 360-568-5235 or Chris Gee at 425-315-2256.
