Event Description

This summer, experience the history of the estate like never before. Guided by staff, this 45-minute outdoor walking tour will share a century of stories – from the widow who built the mansion to the stewards preserving the site today. Learn about the families who called the mansion home, see preservation in action all around the site, enjoy the inspiration of the gardens and landscape, and rediscover the modern impact of Brucemore on Eastern Iowa.
