Historic Buildings of Iowa: Dubuque Day Tour (Sold Out)
This opportunity is currently sold out.
Join us for a day tour of some of the Dubuque locations featured on the Iowa PBS documentary, Historic Buildings of Iowa.
Bright and early, we'll meet in the Millworks District where you'll board our deluxe motorcoach. Our first destination is St Luke's United Methodist Church to view their beautiful stained glass windows. We'll continue on to Steeple Square, which is comprised of four buildings of the former St. Mary's Parish Complex. Today, this soaring landmark has been reestablished as a center for culture, community and education.
Next we visit Eagle Point Park were in addition to having lunch, we'll see a spectacular view of the Mississippi River. After lunch we'll visit the Mathias Ham House which is a great example of large, antebellum residential architecture. Our last stop is a ride on the Fenelon Place Elevator whose funicular railway has been called "the world's steepest, shortest scenic railway." Along with these five stops there are sure to be some added points of interest provided by our tour guides Duane Hagerty and Jason Neises from Heritage Works.
For a $150 donation you will receive one tour ticket that will give you the opportunity to learn and see what makes Dubuque special.
