A one-of-a-kind Father’s Day event

Beer and weaponry. Sound like a Father’s Day dream? This year it’s a reality. From arrowheads to rifles, explore both Native American artifacts and the Tallman Family’s weaponry collection at this Father’s Day open house – all while enjoying beer from Rock County Brewing Company! (Wine also available.)

See a myriad of Native American artifacts displayed at the Tallman Carriage House, while learning about the history of collecting, and repatriation efforts. Next door at the Lincoln-Tallman House drawing room, view the weapons collected by George Kemp Tallman. Now curated with a more masculine feel – including elk heads – the drawing room is an ideal spot for men to congregate!

Mark your calendar today for this fun, one-of-a-kind Father’s Day event! Stay for duration or come and go at your leisure!
