Flynn Mansion Dinners

host at a flynn mansion dinnerTake a seat in the elegant Flynn dining room and allow yourself to be waited on by servants in proper 1870s period clothing. Our dinner host will share stories of Des Moines society and Victorian entertaining as guests enjoy several courses presented in period style. Taste some of the unique staples of a high-style Victorian meal, while kitchen staff provides insights into 19th century menu choices.

After dinner, explore the house and enjoy an intimate look at this historic Italianate home built in 1870. This special edition historic dinner will be presented only a few times this year; make sure you are on the invited guest list!
