Join Villa Louis and other Prairie du Chien-area attractions as they celebrate our national bird, the eagle. If you enjoy watching bald eagles, visiting the Prairie du Chien area is a must. Prairie du Chien is along the migration route and is a normal wintering area for these birds in the Mississippi River valley.
Villa Louis will be open for special winter tours each day of the event. Visit the Prairie du Chien Chamber of Commerce website for more details on the Bald Eagle Appreciation Days event.

Venue: Villa Louis
The historic Villa Louis mansion is the centerpiece of a grand Victorian estate built by the family of Hercules Dousman, a frontier entrepreneur who amassed a fortune in the fur trade and other frontier investments. The mansion has just undergone a top-to-bottom documentary restoration that has returned the Dousman home to the splendor of its 1890s heyday, using British Arts and Crafts interior designs inspired by famed designer William Morris.
