The story of the Victorian Cottage is more than just the 1880s. Even if you have been here before, you will learn more about the history of the house and the people who lived in the cottage in the early 1900s. New signage will explain many of the artifacts on display, including artifacts that have not been seen before.
Tour guides will lead guests on a 45 min tour of the Victorian Cottage. Volunteers should have experience with public speaking and/or theatre. Tour guides do need to be able to use the stairs.
12:30 PM to 04:15 PM
Tours begin at 1pm, 2pm, & 3pm.
