Special Tours Now Offered with Fees Used to Help Flood Restoration

Monday, October 6th, 2008

I’m pleased to announce that we are opening the Farnsworth House for special tours through October 2008. Every Wednesday at 1 p.m., I will lead a tour of the house for a $100 donation. I’ll show you first-hand damage; recount the hours just before the flood; explain the effort currently underway with contractors, conservators, and our board of directors; as well as be the first to reveal the stunning views of the interior seen for the first time without the teak wardrobe.

On the weekends, for a donation of $50, there will be special docent-led tours. Visitors will experience an expanded standard tour with views of the flood-damaged property and learn about our current restoration efforts.

These are truly unique and special tours we are offering during this very difficult time. We are still working very hard on all recovery efforts which will ultimately cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. We hope you will come out, support these efforts with a donation, and have an educational experience learning about what we are dealing with on a daily basis.
