Holly History Tour


The history of prostitution and prohibition has never been so scintillating: 

Downtown: The rise and fall of Bellingham’s Red Light District meets Prohibition-Era vice Downtown. What’s that you say: Outlawing things doesn’t make them go away? Weird. Tour includes a spirits tasting at Chuckanut Bay Distillery! Ages 21+. 

Fridays & Saturdays at 4pm, April 1-September 2. Tickets on sale now! 

Fairhaven: Explore brothels and saloons on the south side of Bellingham in the Historic Fairhaven District. From Devil’s Row to Dirty Dan, Fairhaven won’t seem so quaint once the sassy, corset-clad Good Time Girls reveal its dark past. Ends with a drink at Archer Ale House!

Friday nights, July 7-September 1. Tickets on sale now!

Downtown only: The Holly Street History Tour uses our city’s main arterial street as a guide to our shared past. Guides stop along the way to tell stories of challenges and accomplishments, and what hasn’t really changed since Bellingham’s earliest days.

The tour covers topics of growth, social reform, the arts, women’s history, racial tensions, cooperation and environmental recovery and it is delivered with a sense of wonder and humor.

September. Dates TBA. 


On the Gore & Lore Tours of Downtown & Fairhaven we share the dirty details about some of Bellingham's legendary haunts... And goriest stories. 

Who was Spider Biles? Is there a ghost at Old Town Cafe? What's this about gruesome downtown murder? Learn all this and more on a Gore & Lore tour. 

October only. Tickets on sale soon. 

Totally dug the Sin & Gin Downtown tour... [The guides] are not only super-knowledgeable in the history of Bellingham (which is oh so colorful), they seem passionate about bringing that culture alive and are also very witty. I would highly recommend this tour in our fair towns of Bellingham and Fairhaven.
