Brucemore’s history was built and sculpted by a number of incredible women. Join us on this specialty tour that highlights the lives of those women as a means of sharing the history of the estate while also discussing topics of gender, class, and philanthropy. “In Her Steps” offers unique insight into the women of the estate; from the woman who built the mansion to the woman who entrusted it to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Space is limited for this tour, and tickets are only available for pre-sale. This tour lasts 90 minutes, includes indoor and outdoor portions, and takes visitors to multiple floors of the mansion.
