Walking tours through more than a dozen historic slab cedar log cabins in Pioneer Park are now available Tuesdays through Sundays through September 15th.

City of Ferndale provides tour guides who are dressed in period clothes and guide guests through each cabin providing details of the day-to-day life by their original occupants as well as some activities. The collection of cabins are authentic examples of rustic pioneer architecture inside and out.

It is recommended to allow 1.5 to 2 hours for a walking tour but some end up enjoying the tour for upwards of 4 hours according to Ferndale Heritage Society officials.

Pioneer Park cabin tours are available each year from May 15th through September 15th, 11:30am to 4:30pm, except on Mondays. Tour admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 6 to 12 years and free for those under 6 years. Check in at the Parker House cabin.

Ferndale Heritage Society accommodates group tours that have been previously scheduled in advance of the tour date only. Call 360-384-6461 for more information.
