Villa Louis at 150
FREE | Dec. 4 & 11 | 4 – 5 PM
Celebrate the 150th anniversary of Villa Louis with a special presentation and question-and-answer session with former site curator Mary Antoine. Antoine, president of the Prairie du Chien Historical Society, will guide the audience through the construction of the mansion, former residents, uses of the building, and the most recent restoration of the property. Antoine’s research paved the way for a faithful restoration to be done in the 1990s and early 2000s. The talk, held in the recently restored 1850 Brisbois Fur Trade building, will show why this National Historic Landmark remains important after so many years.
