Home Tour

Saturday, September 23 (changed from Sept 16), 10am-3pm:

This popular tour gets you into 7-8 historic Everett homes!  Pick up your brochure at the Van Valey House, 2130 Colby Ave on the day of the tour. It will probably take you a couple hours to enjoy all the homes, so you should probably get there before 1pm.

Tickets for the home tour are $20, available using one of these places:

  • J Matheson Gifts at 2615 Colby Ave (available starting Sat, Sept 9)
  • Online at Brown Paper Tickets
  • At the Van Valey House on the tour date.

Historic Everett members will also get a poster of the event.

Please contact us if you’d like to be a docent for half the event. Sign up for the morning shift 9am-noon or the afternoon shift from noon-3pm. The event is free for docents to tour the homes either before or after their shift. Training and home assignments will begin at 9am for all docents at the Van Valley House.
