Cover 26 acres and over 125 years of history during Brucemore’s Historic Landscape Tour—Thursday, September 19 at 5:30 p.m. Each of the historic owners of this estate enjoyed the landscape differently. The changes they made to their gardens and grounds reflect their distinct personalities and the times in which they lived. The foundation of this tour is the design of noted landscape architect O. C. Simonds whose 1910 design still defines the way Brucemore is maintained today. Admission is $15 per person and $12 per Brucemore member. Space is limited; purchase tickets online at or by calling (319) 362-7375.

The Historic Landscape Tour is part of Brucemore’s Thursday Night Lineup. Every Thursday night, Brucemore will feature a different specialty tour focusing on topics for all interests, including arts and culture, Midwestern industry, gardening, landscape design, architecture, preservation, behind-the-scenes at Brucemore, and growing up in the early twentieth century. For more information on the Thursday Night Lineup, visit or call (319) 362-7375.
