It is open for tours during Carnation Week in August and at other times by appointment. Contact us at if you’d like to view our beautiful Victorian home, grounds, and our mini museum of Alliance historical objects.

With a long history and colorful heritage, Alliance is home to other historical properties which are owned and operated by their own organizations. Visit our page on Alliance’s Heritage for information about Haines House, Glamorgan Castle, and Alliance Historic Preservation Commission.

Exhibits of historical materials are supplied by the Society for display at local businesses and public buildings. Members of the Society are also available for talks and slide shows at area clubs and meetings.
