Evening Tours of the Adams House • Celebrating the Victorian Era and Roaring Twenties

Written by  Carolyn

Deadwood History is excited to offer visitors to the Historic Adams House two new tours during the summer months. Every Wednesday evening a specialized Victorian Era Tour focusing on the lives of the Franklin family will take place from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Visitors will discover interesting and unknown facts about the family and the unique architecture of the house. Guests will learn about the many intricacies of Victorian etiquette, how the hired help was treated, and the threat of a fire. After the tour, everyone will gather on the yard to play lawn games and enjoy savory foods and beverages. The Roaring Twenties Tour will take place on Friday evenings from 6:00-7:30 p.m. and provide a detailed description of the Adams family and the unique story of their lives in Deadwood.

Facts about Mr. Adams’ cat and mouse courting relationship with his second wife will be revealed, as will the ups and downs of his long tenure as mayor of Deadwood, and an explanation of some of the restoration processes that were carried out in the beautiful home. This tour also will conclude on the side yard where guests can listen to jazz music and enjoy a classic array of hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Please call (605) 578-3724 for reservations. Tours will not be offered during the Sturgis Rally on Wednesday, August 10 or Friday, August 12.
