2010 Parade of Classic Ballard Homes Tour on June 6

Ballard Classic Homes Tour

Sunday, June 6, 2010, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Join the Ballard Historical Society to tour seven lovely vintage homes built between 1909 and 1929. The homes on this year’s Ballard Classic Homes Tour serve as standards of enduring interest, quality and style. The tour is the Ballard Historical Society’s largest fundraiser and takes place only every three years. Check out the home of a doctor who housed tuberculosis patients — right inside his home! And tour the home of a family that served residents for decades at its Ballard meat markets.

Beginning May 14, purchase tickets for $20 at Secret Garden Bookshop, REStore, Johnson & Johnson Antiques and the Sunset Hill Green Market. Exchange your ticket for a tour brochure on Sunday, June 6 beginning at 9:30 a.m. at Sunset Hill Green Market.
Contact Coordinator Lesli Billings at (206) 992-7010 for more information or to volunteer as a docent on this year’s tour.
