    Holiday Home Tour

      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. Built between 1915-1922 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 groups no larger than 12 will depart from the front porch (Hwy 61 side) of the Historic Residence at specific times. Guests must be present 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.

        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.
