This very special tour, the annual benefit for Glessner House Museum, presents attendees with the rare opportunity to visit the interiors of seven historic homes in and around the Prairie Avenue Historic District. Visitors will be treated to a breath-taking array of beautifully carved wood moldings, leaded glass windows, and fireplaces in elaborate tile, mosaic, and marble. The Glessner and Clarke House Museums are also included on the tour as well as historic Second Presbyterian Church with its important arts and crafts interior and collection of windows including nine by Tiffany Studios and two by Morris and Company.
