In 1981, Margaret Hall bequeathed Brucemore, a delightful Queen Anne-style house, to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The focal point of a magnificent 26-acre park-like estate in the heart of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, tours of the 21-room mansion provide a glimpse of the privileged life of another time.
Built in the 1880s, Brucemore has been home to three prominent families who used the estate as a center for culture and the arts. Interiors feature a Wagnerian mural, rich woodwork and a magnificent pipe organ.
Mrs. Hall envisioned Brucemore as both a historic site and community cultural center. In keeping with Mrs. Hall's wishes, two second-floor rooms accommodate meetings of nonprofit, educational, and member business groups.
Brucemore is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and operated by Brucemore, Inc.
