  • This is a fine example of the prosperous 1920's. Amazing medieval type construction right in the heart of Des Moines. We did the self guided tour, and saw most of the house.  more »

  • Had the most wonderful tour of this historic house. Our tour guide, David, was incredibly knowledgeable and went above and beyond the call to provide us with the most information and best experience possible. Please take the time to visit this enchanting mansion and make sure to give whatever donation you feel comfortable, so that future generations can enjoy this marvel as much as we have.
  • One of America's castles. Tours, teas, historic lectures, symphony performances and yearly Shakespeare on the Lawn. A jewel in Des Moines westside.
  • Very educational and interesting. I loved it and highly recommend it
  • Best Salisbury steak in town!!!!! I recommend visiting "Steve Bunce's page dedicated to Salisbury steaks (with garnish) with an honorable mention to hamburger helpers Salisbury mix" Facebook page for all things Salisbury (as long as it's Salisbury steak) and the world of Salisbury steaks!
  • Fabulous venue for educational trips and high end events. This place transports you back to Tudor era England, surrounded by charming gardens and walking paths. Lots of great opportunities for kid's events.
