Historic Homes Trolley Tour

See the Tour Schedule >>

See the Tour Schedule >>

Visit us on Saturdays in July and August to 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 an hour tour of the beautiful 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 the area.

This tour is a hoot! We fill it to capacity every year, so if it sounds like fun, make sure you give us a call (541-757-1544 or 800-334-8118) to make your reservation soon.

The tours depart at 1pm from the corner of 2nd Street and Jackson Avenue, and we’ll drop you off at the same corner when you’re done. Children are welcome, although the tour is not really suitable for kids under 10. A $5 donation is suggested, but not required.
