The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum celebrates its 13th year of opening the doors to grand beach homes, historic cottages, and architectural wonders of Cannon Beach. The fundraiser is scheduled for Sept. 9-11.

The tour is a multi-day event beginning with an exclusive concert and reception on Friday, Sept. 9, featuring vocalist Kelsey Mousley and “The Next Right Thing.” Food will be provided by Sea Level Bakery and Newman’s at 988.

On Saturday, attendees are invited to a special luncheon and lecture at the Tolovana Inn. This year’s lecture will focus on vintage and traditional design and the reawakening of these styles in home design. The speaker, Libby Holah, received her master of architecture from Washington University and has had her vintage and historic designs featured in 1859 Magazine.

Home tours take place in the Tolovana area of Cannon Beach from 1-5 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour historic cottages, grand beach homes, lodges, and inviting gardens. Following the tour, attendees are invited to a concert and reception at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum for a concert featuring Maggie & the Cats.

The final event of the weekend is an English style garden tea at the Tolovana Inn on Sunday, Sept. 11. Attendees will enjoy English style tea while enjoying a presentation by the event’s guest speaker, Sherian Wright.
