Mantorville Restoration House opens for season

The Mantorville Restoration House will open for the season on Saturday, May 17, in conjunction with Mantorville's Spring Fling celebration. The 1856 Restoration House was acquired and restored by the Mantorville Restoration Association (MRA) in 1963. Furnished in the style typical of a late 1800's residence, it is now open to the public for tours during summer months. Guests will also receive a guided tour of the two story log home directly behind the Restoration House. This was the home of the cooper (barrel maker) for the Mantorville Brewery, and showcases a large display of artifacts related to the brewing industry. It is furnished in a style typical of a log home of the mid -1800's. In addition, the limestone Carriage House on Clay Street will be open for self guided viewing of farm related displays.

May is National Preservation Month, and preservation organizations across the country will take the time to celebrate history and historic places. This year's theme, "New Age of Preservation: Embark, Inspire, Engage," is meant to excite current supporters and to introduce new audiences to the work that's being done to enrich and preserve the places that make their community special.

The Restoration House is located at 540 North Main Street. Tours will be available Tuesday - Sunday from 1-5pm through October, with a small donation requested. For more information or to book group tours, please call 507-635-5140 or 507-273-8499. Visit us for an adventure in nostalgia, and for pleasant memories of the past.
