Mechanical Tour

David Davis Mansion Mechanical Tour 

Sunday, January 21, 2018 -- Ticketed Event -- Tours at 1:00pm & 3:00pm 

Have you ever wondered how on earth people lived in houses without today's conveniences that we take for granted ??? 

Here's your chance to take a look behind the scenes at the mechanicals that made the 1870s Victorian David Davis Mansion one of the most comfortable, up-to-date homes on the prairie.

*  How was the David Davis Mansion lit?           *  What was the source?             *  How did it work?

*  Did the water come from a well?                *  Or, did the city have water available in 1872?

*  How did they heat the house?          *  How was the boiler fired?

*  What is in the attic?

These questions and more will be answered on Sunday, January 21th, during this special David Davis Mansion Mechanical Tour.  Two tour times are available, 1:00pm and 3:00pm, and each one is limited to 20 people. Tickets are $15 each. Come join us for a little fun and a lot of historical mechanical information!
