The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is extremely important to us. To help minimize the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Farnsworth House site is temporarily closed until further notice.
The Lower Terrace Restoration project has begun and will continue through July.
This is a very unique opportunity to come out to see historic preservation work in action.
If you can’t visit please consider helping us reach our financial goal to complete the project. We need your support and every dollar counts!
