Event Description

Discover preservation in progress this summer at Brucemore, one of Iowa’s most iconic historic sites. Executive Director David Janssen will lead you on a special look at the on-going preservation work that helps ensure the property is around for the next 100 years. The 26-acre estate features six historic structures that create a complex puzzle of aging stone, wood, metal, slate, glass, and brick. The tour will include access to buildings not usually open to the public as well as a look at Phase II of the Mansion Envelope Restoration Project. Each tour will offer a different perspective as various parts of the project are completed throughout the summer.
