Flynn Mansion Dinners

Our dinner host will share stories of Des Moines society and Victorian entertaining as guests enjoy several courses presented in period style.

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!
