"Eastertide" at the Avery House


The Victorians loved Easter, calling it "Eastertide" and celebrating the occasion for over one week. Egg hunts and the Easter Hare come from German tradition, but post-Civil War Americans shaped the holiday into a lively celebration that included egg rolling and flower-festooned Easter bonnets.


The Avery House invites you to immerse yourself in Victorian elegance. Free tours are offered Saturdays & Sundays, 1-4 p.m.


NOTE: We are closed on Easter Sunday, April 5, to allow our volunteers to enjoy Easter with their families.

History Comes to Life During School Tours
  
2nd graders tour Avery House
Let our knowledgeable docents regale your school group with tales of life in turn-of-the-19th-century Fort Collins. Kids soak up history as they tour the old-fashioned kitchen, spy the  hidden cubby in the children's bedroom, view the curious Victorian "hair art" in the Avery bedroom, and more.
