September 16, 2017

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 29, 2017

Combine a mimosa at Lock 16 Café, a historic 1-hour mule pulled boat ride on the I&M Canal Boat, and a 1-hour tour of the historic Hegeler Carus Mansion.
Step back to 1848 and take a ride on the I&M Canal on The Volunteer, a mule-pulled Canal Boat. Meet our guides and hear their stories of life along the canal in 1848, when the I&M Canal first opened and Illinois was the western frontier. After your boat tour come into the Lock 16 to receive a delicious mimosa. Then visit the National Historic Landmark, Hegeler Carus Mansion. Experience the grandeur of a bygone era and the heritage of a fascinating family whose history is woven tightly with that of the Illinois Valley and the United States, as well as internationally.
Reservations strongly recommended, ticket available online.
