The Castle-sponsored Marietta Homes Tour will return next month.

After a hiatus caused by the pandemic, the historic tour of the homes presented by the castle will take place on May 27th and 28th, starting at 10am and ending at 4pm each day.

Participants will experience historic Marietta by touring the homes of the first settlement established in the Northwest Territory. The tour will be of interest to collectors, architects, historians, photographers and people who love old homes.

Homes shown on Saturday will be different from those scheduled on Sunday.

One-day tickets can be purchased for Saturday or Sunday tours. By purchasing a weekend pass, participants can visit all of the homes listed for both days.
