Flower Patch and Diamond House Bed and Breakfast Tours/Packages

Arcola Architectural Tour

Arcola, like so many other Midwestern towns, embraced the creative developments of American house architecture, taking many of their cues from Eastern contractors and architects.

Fortunately the community still retains many examples of more than a century of American house architectural changes.

The GUIDED walking tour provides:
  • Wonderful, real life examples of American house architecture for the past 100 years
  • Specific house styles
  • Architectural structures that are identified and defined
  • Examples of turn-of-the-century small town storefronts
  • Outstanding example of a historic Carnegie library
  • Example of early 1900 stained-glass church windows
  • Outdoor walking exercise
Tours Mon-Sat; afternoon Sunday.
