2019 Historic Homes Trolley Tour

Marci Sischo | 06/11/2019 | Featured on Home Page, Historical Tours, History, Summer

Visit us on Saturdays in July and August for the Historic Homes Trolley Tour!

Join in a guided driving tour of the gorgeous historic homes in and around downtown Corvallis, Oregon. Ride in comfortable antique style in an old-fashioned trolley as an informed guide explains the history and architecture behind the beautiful homes on the tour.

The Historic Homes Trolley Tour is an annual tradition in Corvallis, Oregon, and a great way to cap off a Saturday morning at our lively Farmers Market. We bring in a beautiful vintage trolley (with all the modern conveniences, like handicap accessibility and air conditioning) and send you on a tour of the lovely old homes in and around downtown Corvallis.

Our knowledgeable guide will regale you with the history of the home, architectural details, and a bit of history about the families who lived there and in the area.
