10 Years of Trolley Tours in Corvallis

August 7, 2017 | Mary Pat Parket

Corvallis invites you to hop on the trolley this summer for their 10th Annual Trolly Tour series.

Since 2007, the Historic Preservation Commission has hosted an annual trolley tour of historic homes in and around Corvallis. These hour-long tours offer a fascinating look at local Corvallis architecture and the people that made it happen. Many of the downtown buildings on tour date back to the 1800’s, including the Benton County Courthouse – the oldest courthouse in the state that still operates to this day with its’ original purpose.  In addition to being a valuable stop on the trolley tour, the Benton County Courthouse offers an insider tour weekly where you can visit actual courtrooms with handcrafted and functional artwork.

Tours are available August 12th and 26th. Reservations are recommended as seating is limited for each tour. Make your reservation today by calling the Visit Corvallis office at (541) 757-1544.

For more information about all Corvallis Courthouse tours please contact the Courthouse elections office at (541) 766-6828.
