Guided Tours are $5.00 per person (children 6 and under are free) and can be arranged for groups of 10 or more by calling 702-826-1908 or use the Contact page to email the Events Chair. Several weeks notice of a planned visit is suggested when date and length of time on site can be discussed. The tour of both the barn and house generally takes about 90 minutes but can be adjusted depending on available time for your group’s visit. We graciously accept donations for site tours; they are used for site improvements and additions. Also, the Octagon Barn site can be reserved for large group picnics, reunions, and other group gatherings.
