Curriculum Standards for Field Trips

The Villa Louis school tour is designed to complement the 4th grade textbook, Our State, Our Story, but works well with nearly any grade level or curriculum. The tour covers all aspects of the site’s history, from the Great Lakes Fur Trade to the Battle of Prairie du Chien to the life of the wealthy Victorian family who built the mansion itself.

Tours last approximately 2 ½ hours and contain outdoor activities, so dress accordingly. To reserve your trip or for more information, contact Villa Louis at 608-326-2721 or by email.
