Experience Salisbury House & Gardens

Salisbury House is a historic house museum surrounded by nine acres of beautiful gardens and woodland. The estate was inspired by King's House in Salisbury, England, and numerous architectural elements from 15th and 16th century Britain are incorporated into the building. Carl and Edith Weeks - who built Salisbury House in the 1920's - were avid collectors of books, art, historic documents, and furnishings, and most of what they amassed during their 30 years at Salisbury House remains here. Major art works by such luminaries as Sir Anthony van Dyck and Joseph Stella line the walls.  Signed books and documents from Abraham Lincoln, Ernest Hemingway, Queen Elizabeth I and many others tangibly bring history to life. Salisbury House has a rich, meaningful history as a beloved community attraction, widely recognized as a treasure by the National Register of Historic Places and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

We look forward to welcoming you to Salisbury House for a tour, a private event, or one of the many public events we host throughout the year!


Iowa State University Theatre and Opera Studio present

October 18, 2018

Don't miss Iowa State University’s Department of Music and Theatre's presentation of selections of Orpheus in the Underworld by Jacques Offenbach. In one of the most satirical and hilarious operas of all time, Orpheus must travel from the pastoral tranquility of earth through the dizzying frivolity of heaven to the bacchanalian hedonism of Hades to rescue Eurydice. Climaxing in the exuberant, reveling “Can-Can”, Orpheus in the Underworld is a delectable comic romp.

Performance Begins at 7:00 pm; doors open at 6:15 pm
