With the truly unprecedented events unfolding around us involving the coronavirus, Bonnet House is proud to present you with a virtual—and vintage—visit to the museum.

For those who have visited Bonnet House, you will recall that there is a video shown in the Carl Weinhardt Gallery that provides a broad history of the property and a visit to the upstairs.  That video is actually part of a much longer production that takes viewers through the first floor and presents much more oral history by Evelyn Bartlett and Irene Hart.  It also contains extended clips from the Bartletts’ home movies.  Joanne Leathe is the volunteer tour guide, Mike Green is the narrator, and the man in brown with the walking stick is Frank Lloyd Wright.

During these trying times, we hope you enjoy this four part virtual and vintage tour of Bonnet House!  Click on Links Below to View Vintage Videos.
