Tour the Browns
For 12 years Jane, Ferne and Momo owned and operated a little boutique in the Molly Brown Summer House. They thought it would be a gentle use of the house and hoped it would pay the bills. Through the years, customers would come in and shop and as they browsed, Jane would answer their questions and curiosity about the home’s authenticity, architectural details, use, materials, etc.
For Momo, it meant a daily history lesson and also the realization of how much she didn’t know about her own family history as well as the Brown’s history and their time at Avoca.
It took a few years, but after a while, Momo felt confident enough to field questions and then found herself doing research on the Brown’s and on Avoca.
Today, all of the personal history lessons and research are shared with our guests via a tour of the Molly Brown Summer House. Every tour is unique, in that the story of the Browns, Avoca and the house is retold in special ways. Guests will see rare furniture, photos and artifacts from a time long ago. Each guest has had their own favorite part of the tour. Every tour features a delicious lunch featuring some of the best sweets around.
