Check back for the date for the 2015 home tour. Please stay tuned for more details.
There has been a hurricane of effort restoring some historic properties in Brigham City, and the public will have the opportunity to visit six of them during the city’s 1st annual Historic Home Tour on June 22 from 1 to 4 p.m. The cost is $15 per person six years and older and $10 for museum members. Each participant will be given a pamphlet with photos and histories of the homes as well as a tour map.
Tickets can be purchased at the Brigham City Museum of Art and History at 24 North 300 West. The entrance is on the west side. The day of the tour tickets can be purchased at the museum as well as City Hall at 20 North Main. All proceeds go to the Box Elder Museum Foundation (and support the Museum and historic preservation initiatives).
The historic homes selected for the tour are located between 100 North and 200 South between Main Street and 200 East. They are owned by Lynn and Judy Brailsford, Scott and Karen Ericson, Brent and LeeAnn Jensen, Chase and McKell Jensen, David and Tristan Lloyd, and Matt and Chelsea Noyes. Two of the homes are on the National Register, which is America's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation (a third is currently is the process of a nomination).
Where do I buy tickets? Buy tickets at the museum (24 North 300 West), or at City Hall (20 North Main) (tickets will be available at City Hall only on the day of the tour).
How much are tickets? Tickets are $10 for museum members, $15 for the general public. Children 6 and under may accompany their parents for free, but strollers are not allowed in the houses.
Is this a guided tour? No. When you purchase your tickets you will receive a pamphlet that provides a map, addresses of the houses on the tour, and brief information about each house. There will be docents in each home to answer questions and provide information. Go at your own pace.
Are their buses? No, but the houses on the tour are within a very walkable area.
Where should I park? Park at City Hall or along the street in the neighborhood.
Will I get to see the inside of the houses? Yes. While some areas may be closed off, you will see the inside of these beautiful historic homes.
We recommend wearing comfortable shoes that will accommodate a booty, as you will be required to put on (provided) booties to keep people from tracking dirt through the homes.
