Tour the blossoming gardens and lush terrain during Brucemore in Bloom – Thursday, May 30 at 6:00 p.m. Trace the development of the gardens from the original plan conceived by prominent landscape architect O.C. Simonds to the integration of function, recreation, and entertainment in Irene Douglas's vision for the country estate. View current plants and landscape techniques that continue to help preserve the historically accurate, prairie-style design by Simonds. Admission is $15 per person and $12 per Brucemore member. Space is limited; purchase tickets online at or by calling (319) 362-7375.
