Celebrate another season of great Wisconsin history at the Villa
Louis with tours of the mansion, refreshments and reduced admission. And you’ll want to stick around for a rousing game of vintage 1860s baseball.
Half-price admission on Saturday, June 2, 2012, only: $4.50 for adults, free for children 17 and under
The historic Villa Louis mansion is the centerpiece of a grand Victorian estate built by the family of Hercules Dousman, a frontier entrepreneur who amassed a fortune in the fur trade and other frontier investments. The mansion has just undergone a top-to-bottom documentary restoration that has returned the Dousman home to the splendor of its 1890s heyday, using British Arts and Crafts interior designs inspired by famed designer William Morris.
