Join Us on August 20th for a Tour of Historic Downtown Renton!

We invite you to spend some time downtown learning a bit of history, supporting small businesses, and contributing to the revitalization of downtown Renton!

Enjoy a guided tour through downtown to learn about some of our most notable buildings and imagine Renton when it was a start-up mining town, a bustling district modernizing after WWII, and as it was redefining its image for the new millennium.

Choose between two 1-hour tours at 10am and 1pm, or book them both and have a leisurely lunch at one of our many downtown restaurants with some bonus time for shopping!

Each tour visits at least 10 curated locations around downtown, spanning from some of our oldest buildings like the Snoqualmie Falls Power Company Substation to newer buildings tied to local history, like Luther’s Table. Purchase of a $25 ticket includes a tour, a tote bag, an admission ticket for the Renton History Museum, a program, and a tasty treat along the tour route.

Capacity is limited to 20 attendees per tour, so secure your tickets now!
