Willamette Living History Tour:

(Cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19)

Late September. Architecture and history buffs take note: This lantern lit tour provides a peek into restored homes. Costumed guides and local actors bring history to life with re-enactments of turn of the 20th Century Willamette life. A horse drawn carriage proves a sometimes messy mode of transport. This ticketed event often sells out so reserve your place in history early!
