Join other alumnae members to take a behind-the-scenes look at the back staircases, dust chutes, silver vault and more on this 90-minute tour of the James J. Hill House. Visitors will see the top-floor attic with original theater, take the back stairs to the basement, view storage areas not on the regular tour, and take a peek inside the gate house overlooking Summit Avenue.
Guides will also discuss the technological innovations present in the house at the time of its construction in the late 19th century, and the difficulties of preserving such a building today.
Tour begins at 7 p.m. Please arrive at 6:30 to enter as part of our group. Tour will be led by a costumed interpreter portraying a construction worker or house servant.
