Iowa Hotel Reservations
History buffs should schedule a trip to Cedar Rapids during their Iowa travels, and make the Brucemore Mansion the first stop. This incredible, historic Queen Anne-style home was built between 1884 and 1886 by Caroline Sinclair on 26 acres of land.
Three families lived in the mansion until 1981, when it was given to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The mansion, sometimes referred as the T.M. Sinclair Mansion, remains the only National Trust Historic Site in the state.
The mansion grounds include a pond, formal gardens, an orchard, a children's garden, woodland and a night garden. This three-story home features 21 rooms, five chimneys, turrets and a steep gabled roof. Enjoy a guided tour of this incredible mansion, and stop by the Brucemore Visitor Center to learn more about its history. "The Families of Brucemore" exhibit features a model of the mansion, photographs, and home movies.
