This special-themed tour will uncover their stories and take a deeper look at this history. The tour will be held on March 12 and April 2 at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $15 per adult. Students and Brucemore members receive a discount. Space is limited; tickets can be purchased online at www.brucemore.org or by telephone at (319) 362-7375.
