WEEKEND: Then, now holiday home tours in Port Townsend, Port Ludlow

Holiday homes “now” and “then” will be on display in Port Ludlow and Port Townsend this weekend.

The Port Ludlow Community Enrichment Alliance and the Victorian Society of America, Northwest chapter, are combining efforts for a new approach to holiday home tours.

They will offer a chance to visit homes dressed for the “now” season in Port Ludlow, and the following day, visitors can take a look at “then” in Port Townsend.

Port Ludlow will open four homes for tours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

On Sunday, three Victorian-era homes in Port Townsend will invite visitors to tour from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

All homes will be decorated for the holiday.


Tickets are $20 for each individual tour or $35 for admission to both tours.

The ticket price for the Ludlow tour includes light refreshments at the Inn at Port Ludlow on Saturday.

Sunday’s tour of Victorian homes in Port Townsend includes live music by local musicians and singers, and light refreshments at each of the homes.

Port Townsend organizers encourage visitors to imagine they are attending a 19th-century reception, where hosts and docents will be in Victorian dress.

To purchase tickets, visit Dana Pointe Interiors and the Inn at Port Ludlow, both in Port Ludlow, and Vintage Hardware in Port Townsend.
