Help Wanted Tour

May 1 to September 1


Tour Details

Tallman House Help Wanted Tour

It’s time to descend the stairs and enter the world of servant life. That means rolling up your sleeves, putting on an apron, and participating in a variety of 19th century chores and activities. If you are a fan of “Downton Abbey,” this is the tour for you! It is also a great family activity, as it is both interactive and entertaining for all age groups. The tour covers the home’s first and second floors, the basement/kitchen, as well as an exhibit.
