Give a Gift - Chip In

The Historical Tour of Homes is happening the first weekend in December in Franklin County Iowa. (details to follow)

Can't come? We understand. You're busy. You live far away. You have other plans. You'd like to but just can't. We get it.

We also know something else. We know you have big hearts. We know you'd like to come. We know you don't know how to turn us down and you just won't show up.

Well, let us make your life just a little easier. And let us make you feel a lot better. Why not donate via the ChipIn widget below? For every $15 you donate, we will give a ticket to the Historical Tour of Homes to an ambulatory resident of one of our nursing homes. We'll also send you a charitable contribution receipt for your tax records.


Historical Tour of Homes will feature:

Blum/Boehmler House - designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Harriman Neilsen Historic Farm - lived in since 1918 by Danish sisters until their death.

Country Heritage Bed and Breakfast - a Sears Roebuck house converted to a B and B

Old Stone House - built in 1854 by a man for his wife, and still standing!

Townsend Winery - a new winery in an old barn.

Dates and Times:

December 5 1 pm to 4 pm

December 6 3 pm to 6 pm

You can drive yourself (maps are being made and will be posted) or meet at the park across from the post office. We have buses to take you!


$15 in advance, $20 the day of

Disclosure: I am a board member of the Franklin County Historical Society and the Old Stone House Association. We are not paid for the work we do. We gladly volunteer and take great pride in our historical sites. Money raised from the Historical Tour of Homes will be split 50/50 between the Old Stone House project and the Harriman Nielsen project.
