Visit the Marathon County Historical Society as we present Houses in Bloom, March 6 to 11, 2018. Both of our historic houses will be filled with fresh flowers artfully arranged by various local designers.
In only its third year, this popular week has become a late-winter tradition as we anticipate the color, fragrance, beauty, and simple joy that flowers offer. The elegant rooms in both the Woodson History Center and the Yawkey House Museum will be enhanced by fresh floral arrangements. Local designers visit the homes in advance and create floral displays to fit each room.
Tours of the Yawkey House Museum leave on the hour beginning at 9 am Tuesday through Friday, or 1 pm Saturday and Sunday, with the last tour at 3 pm all days. Tour tickets cost $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $5 for youths, or free for members and children younger than 6, the usual cost for Yawkey House tours year-round.
Purchase tickets across the street at the Woodson History Center, where you can enjoy browsing exhibits on various topics of Marathon County History, which are always free to visit during our open hours.
