    Help Wanted Tour

    It’s time to descend the stairs and enter the world of servant life! The Rock County Historical Society presents Help Wanted, a new tour in which visitors learn about Victorian life through the eyes of the servants. You’ll roll up your sleeves, put on an apron and join in a variety of 19th century chores and activities. If you’re a fan of “Upstairs Downstairs” or “Downton Abbey”, this is definitely the tour for you! It’s also a great family or rental activity, as it is both interactive and entertaining for all ages.
