"Live a good life, and in the end, it’s not the years in the life, it’s the life in the years."

Restored classics on parade

It’s Year 60 of the town’s beloved museum and Year 1 of the Cashmere Historic Home Tour. 

In celebration of its birthday, the Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village on Cottage Avenue invites all architects, builders, history buffs and house lovers to tour six restored vintage homes on Saturday June 1.

Ticket-holders will also have rare behind-the-scenes access to the Horan, Weythman, and Richardson cabins in the Pioneer Village, and as well as free admission to the Museum for that day.

 You’ll be able to walk through two Craftsman-style homes close to downtown on Cottage Avenue and Riverfront Drive, built in 1908 and 1927 respectively; and four restored farmhouses on Tigner, Pioneer and Hinman Roads built between 1901 and 1920.   

 These six homes were chosen both for the rich traditions of the past they represent and for the respect given to their origins while updating them for 21st Century life. 

Orchardists, business people, craftsman and community notables and their families have lived and worked in them over the years, and the most current owners have been careful to restore or replicate the spirit of the time they were first built.

 Tours are self-guided, with a descriptive brochure and driving map available when you buy a ticket at the Museum ($20 general public, $15 Museum members, purchased beforehand or the morning of). Owners of the homes will welcome visitors all day Saturday from 10 a.m., until 4 p.m. 

 Key organizers of the event are museum director Lexie Palmer, the Cashmere Chamber of Commerce and its manager Gina Imperato, and Nancy Fike with sponsor GTC Technical Support.  

All proceeds benefit the Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village.
