Book Event in Delavan for 'Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes'

Join authors M. Caren Connolly and Louis Wasserman at an event celebrating the release of their latest book, "Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes," an architectural history richly illustrated with the photographs of Zane Williams. This event will be held at the Allyn Mansion in Delavan. The Allyn Mansion, one of the houses featured in "Wisconsin's Own," will be open for public viewing, and interpreters in Victorian costume will be on hand to share the history of the home. Refreshments will be served, and the authors will sign books. Books will be available for sale.

"Wisconsin's Own" tells the story of the considerable contribution Wisconsin's historic homes have made to American residential architecture. The houses profiled in "Wisconsin's Own" are a mix of public ones you may have visited and private homes you've been hoping for an invitation to explore. These homes are representative of the varied architectural styles in Wisconsin, from an Italianate mansion along the Mississippi River and an Adirondack-style camp in the North Woods to a 14-bedroom Georgian Revival mansion on Lake Geneva. Other architectural masterpieces by Frank Lloyd Wright and his mentor Louis Sullivan represent the Prairie School.

"Wisconsin's Own" offers an intimate tour of residential treasures that have endured the test of time.
