This is a new a tour series that we have wanted to offer for a while a chance to enjoy lunch and learn new things all in the same tour. We will enjoy tours of two beautifully preserved Mansions … one that serves as a home tour and dining experience and the other that is home to famous Indiana Art.

The Haan Museum of Indiana Art - Three museums in one, all housed in a mansion that served as the Connecticut Building at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. The Museum is known for its outstanding collection of historic Indiana paintings, including the best works by T.C. Steele. They also display hundreds of Indiana ceramics - including tables, chairs, figural works, and architectural forms as well as bronze and stone sculptures and glass. A major collection of ornate antique American furniture adds to the experience. The two main floors of the Haan Museum encompass about 9,000 square feet. • Haan Museum Sculpture Garden - On the grounds of Haan Museum is a sculpture garden. It includes over twenty sculptures from notable Indiana artists. The sculptures range in form and media, including: bronze, stone, clay, and steel.  •  The Fowler House Mansion - One of the finest existing examples of Gothic architecture in the Midwest. It was completed in 1852 by Moses and Eliza Fowler then renovated and expanded in 1917 by their grandson Cecil and his wife Louise. By 1941 Cecil and Louise were empty nesters and having grown older, no longer wished to live in such a large home. After almost 90 years in the Fowler family the house was sold to the Tippecanoe County Historical Association. The house became the home for the Associations offices, collections and served as the County Museum. The Association closed the museum in 2005, although it was still partially used for offices, storage and rented out for weddings and other events.  In the Spring of 2015 Matt and Dr. Ann Jonkman founded The 1852 Foundation to purchase, restore, preserve and operate this landmark and allow it to once again be enjoyed by our community.  We will enjoy lunch in this historic mansion followed by a guided tour.
