        The Historic Tower View Residence is a Georgian Revival style brick house with 12 rooms. Beautifully crafted cherry woodwork and decorative painting are featured throughout the house. It was built between 1916-1917 as a family home by Dr. Alexander Pierce Anderson, an educator, inventor, and plant physiologist best known as the inventor of puffed wheat.

        Occupied by artists-in-residence and private rentals, the Holiday Art Fair & Home Tour event is the only opportunity all year for the general public to tour the Historic Residence, a unique part of Red Wing’s history.

        Guided tours for small groups will depart for the Anderson Home from the Main Entrance to the Galleries. Guests must be present and checked-in at the Main Entrance at least 5 minutes prior to their tour start time. Tour admission is $10 for adults, $5 for youth under 18, and free for Anderson Center members.

        ASL interpretation for the Residence Tours is upon request. To request interpretation, please contact Stephanie at stephanie@andersoncenter.org or 651-388-2009 at least two weeks prior to the event.

        The Anderson Center is committed to adhering to state and county health guidelines regarding COVID-19. No proof of vaccination or a negative test is required for Holiday Home Tours at this time. Updates will be posted here and sent to all ticket buyers.

        Commercial self-cleaning, bi-polar air ionizers have also been installed in all ductwork servicing the Tower View Barn and common areas of the Anderson Center's Main Building complex.

        This event is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
