For Iowa kids, this is a fun adventure that can easily be combined with a trip to the Capitol. It is a good idea to plan ahead, as tours are by appointment. However, the tours are thorough, and the house is beautiful. Our kids enjoyed considering that this was where the governor actually lives (and even tried to peek to see if he was home).

Wanted to change the contact website as the one listed was not in English. Don't know what that site actually is (Asian? of some kind?)

http://www.terracehilliowa.org/

(don't know if site given is a spam site or a virus site but definitely wanted it updated so other people go to the correct website)
