This hands-on cooking workshop for children entering grades 3-8 takes kids back in time by using the utensils, recipes, and technology of the 1890’s to make cookies and other light refreshments in our restored Victorian kitchen.

Villa Louis, 521 Villa Louis Rd
Prairie du Chien,
The historic Villa Louis mansion is the centerpiece of a grand Victorian estate built by the family of Hercules Dousman, a frontier entrepreneur who amassed a fortune in the fur trade and other frontier investments. The mansion has just undergone a top-to-bottom documentary restoration that has returned the Dousman home to the splendor of its 1890s heyday, using British Arts and Crafts interior designs inspired by famed designer William Morris.
