The historical areas from lower Colfax to Applegate are featured in this year’s Colfax Garden Club Garden and Art Tour.

There will be six wonderful gardens on the tour including a small meticulous garden; a spreading park-like estate; a hunting lodge and garden built in 1919 which was the original Heather Glen; former pheasant farms developed into delightful gardens and a lavender farm.

All of the gardens have unique features to explore. Numerous artists will be displaying their crafts, including items for sale. A list of places to eat in Colfax will be available at the gardens. A picnic area and available restrooms will be shown on the map with the ticket.

The Artists in the Garden Tour is Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
