Mission Statement

To engage the public in the history, traditions, resouces and on-going preservation of Brucemore for the enrichment of the community.

Description

Built between 1884-1886, the Brucemore property features a Queen Anne-style mansion on 26 acres. Guided tours of the mansion explain the lives of the three families who owned the property and their relationship to the greater Cedar Rapids community. The formal gardens, orchard, greenhouses, visitor's center exhibits and outdoor amphitheater encourage visitors to enjoy beautiful walks and extraordinary outdoor enterntainment.

Brucemore is a unique community asset that merges regional history with contemporary culture. Over the last twelve months, approximately 43,000 people visited Brucemore to tour the estate, watch live theater, visit an exhibit, enjoy a concert, explore the gardens and grounds, and take advantage of many other opportunities to relish this irreplaceable site.

In 1981 Brucemore became a co-stewardship property owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The operation of the site is administered by Brucemore, Inc., a private non-profit organization governed by a local, 16-member Board of Trustees.

Volunteers fulfill Brucemore's mission in a variety of ways including assisting with cultural events and leading tours of the mansion. Your involvement in our volunteer activities is vital to the ongoing success of the organization. Contact us to discover how you can become involved in sharing and supporting this irreplaceable community asset.
