There are LOTS of reasons to visit Skagit Valley any time of the year. Here’s a fun one you can take now or whenever…some of the barns featured are on the tulip route!
The Skagit County Historical Museum has created a heritage barn tour including 55 historic registered barns. These self-guided tours include the build date, roof style, agricultural use and in many cases, the family history of many Skagit County pioneers.
There’s a delightful history with each cavernous structure, such as the one that has an old hand-made sign, still intact, that reads “Saturday Night Dance.” (We especially like #25, the Johnson Barn, because, like the Museum, they’re one of our great sponsors!)
