LOGAN, UTAH—The ninth annual Cache Valley historic home tour will be held Sept. 10 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and will spotlight six homes in Logan, Mendon and Newton. The event is presented by the Cache Valley Historical Society and Cache Valley Visitors Bureau.
“Community members will enjoy seeing what homeowners have done through a lot of hard work and ingenuity to preserve, restore or renovate their homes,” said Bernice McCowin, tour chair.
The tour features the oldest rock home in Cache Valley, an 1865 cabin that was part of the original Mendon Fort, mansions on Logan’s Center Street, an 1868 hotel that is now a private residence and more. Bonus locations include a large display of antique farming and mining machinery as well as a stop at the Newton Market, built as a confectionary more than 100 years ago.
“I’m excited about this year’s tour because it’s a chance to get out and explore the valley in such a beautiful time of year,” said Julie Hollist Terrill, director of the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau. “It’s fun to see the creativity and variety of homes created by these early craftsmen with such high-quality construction and impressive details.”
Guests should purchase tickets in advance. They are $10 and available at the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau, 199 North Main; Macey’s Food & Drug in Logan and Providence; Lee’s Marketplace in Logan and Smithfield and the Newton Market. Cash and checks are accepted. Tickets will also be available at the homes the day of the tour.
Proceeds from the tour will be used to fund scholarships for USU students studying local history and to provide bus transportation for local school children to visit the American West Heritage Center.
