Welcome to Robert Tinker's World! Join Tinker Swiss Cottage as we follow in the footsteps of former Rockford Mayor and Park District Commissioner, Robert Hall Tinker and his family. We will see the exterior of many of the homes, businesses, and public buildings that the Tinker family enjoyed visiting while they inhabited the Swiss Cottage. Along the way you will learn to recognize a number of different architectural styles and deepen your knowledge of history regarding the Forest City.
Come see southwest Rockford through the eyes of the Victorians on June 22nd from 10-11:30am!
Tours start and end at the Barn. This is an approximately 1.5-mile walking tour with some uneven ground. Please wear appropriate walking shoes to this event. A first-floor tour of the Cottage will conclude this walking tour.
**Please note: There are no physical tickets. Once you purchase your spot, you will be placed onto a reservation form and will need to check in at the Barn upon arrival.
