Explore the culture of high Victorian dining with an evening meal in the Flynn Mansion at Living History Farms! Join us for this unique opportunity to experience the serving culture and specialty courses which made up an elegant dinner party in the past.
Take 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 nine food courses presented in 19th century style. Taste some of the unique staples of the Victorian meal, such as bacon wrapped oysters, mock turtle soup, and beef a la mode.
After dinner, retire to the library for coffee and an intimate look at this historic Italianate home built in 1870.
