Attention, history hounds, architectural enthusiasts and coastally curious: it’s time to put on your walking shoes and take a tour through Cannon Beach for the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum’s 11th Annual Cottage & Garden Tour. Visitors to picturesque Cannon Beach will get an inside peek at true coastal living during the Tour of Homes and Gardens on Saturday and Sunday the 13th and 14th of September.
Each year a group of hard-working volunteers and staff spend time painstakingly picking out unique Cannon Beach homes. This year, the group has spent time researching beach dream homes, vintage cottages, iconic lodging facilities, and gardens in an area of Cannon Beach never toured before.
The tour, which benefits the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum, is a "tour through time,” says Dick Frank, a Seaside resident and former Cottage Tour lecturer. The tour integrates history, architecture and craftsmanship with artistic home design and landscaping.
A pre-tour luncheon and lecture, beginning at noon, will be hosted at the Tolovana Inn, which is the site of the old Warren Hotel. The Warren brothers constructed The Warren Hotel in 1911. One of their first guests was Oregon’s 14th governor, Oswald West.
Tickets will be the same price as last year and will be available on June 1st either online or over the phone. The first fifty people to purchase tickets online or over the phone will receive a complimentary copy of Jill Grady’s book Cannon Beach Cottages and a chance for an invitation to the Opening Reception on Friday night. Weekend event packages will be available, with a discount for Museum members.
