Kennewick's historic homes open to visitors

KENNEWICK, WA- Several historic homes in Kennewick will open their doors to visitors this weekend.

One of the houses will be the Owen house on Kennewick Avenue.

Horse Heaven Hills rancher Harry Owens built the brick house in 1948. The Owen family still lives in the home.

"These homes are great for their architecture, the craftsmanship, for the collections people have, and for the people who live there and have lived there," says tour organizer Tom Moak. "There are great stories of the people living in these particular homes and these neighborhoods."

Six homes will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday. Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 on the day of the tour. Tickets are available at the East Benton County Museum,  JD's Time Center  in Kennewick and The Bookworm in Richland.
