Each year thousands of visitors and school children tour Hower House. Tours are conducted by the Victorians, our trained volunteer docents. The Victorians contribute hundreds of hours each year for tours and other activities at Hower House.

Exhibits, educational programs, holiday festivities, guest speakers and other activities are presented that reflect the Victorian era and the history of the Hower Family and their elegant House.
