The tour will feature eight vintage homes and will include five historic museums covering diverse specialties such as unusual architecture, antique home furnishings, Civil War memorabilia, and a restored antique post office. To close out the tour's sixteen structures will be three businesses from Marshall's well-maintained historic business district. Marshall's Home Tour was voted the Best Home Tour by the readers of AAA's Michigan Living magazine.”

Of special interest to fans of John Bellairs is the inclusion of the Cronin House (407 North Madison), the landmark inspiration for The House with a Clock in its Walls.

Thank you for dedicating some of your time to this blog. It’s been many years since I last read Bellairs but the excitement that I felt during my first read of The Trolley to Yesterday and the memory of sweat dripping from my brow because of nervous terror during an all night go at the Mummy, the Will, and the Crypt are still with me today. Occasionally, I troll the web for information about Bellairs. It’s odd that I’m still captivated by an author who I read when I was 10 and I’m glad to see that other adults share my fascination.
