A Change Through Time:
A Photographic Exhibit of the Tinker Cottage
February 3- July 5, 2015
The landscape surrounding Robert Tinker’s Swiss Cottage has changed dramatically over the past 150 years. Originally, the area was used as pasture lands when Robert had the ambitious desire to scoop up the property and begin building. Throughout the years, Robert toiled to create the ideal landscape on over 27 acres of land, in the heart of downtown Rockford.
