Explore the Irish heritage of one of the most influential families of the Gilded Age. Mary Theresa Mehegan, the daughter of Irish immigrants, wed James Jerome Hill, a young Canadian immigrant of Scotch-Irish stock, who went on to achieve incredible success and fortune with the Great Northern Railway. Though proudly American, the Hill family retained their Irish values and culture through their love of traditional Irish music as well as women's needlepoint and lace-making.
Theme tours will include favorite Irish songs, organ music and needlework demonstrations. Stories of the Hills and their servants (many of them Irish) will engage visitors in the history of Irish-Americans in Minnesota.
