Brucemore is an unparalleled blend of tradition and culture located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. At the heart of the historic 26-acre estate stands a 19th-century mansion, filled with the stories of three Cedar Rapids families. Concerts, theater, programs, and tours enliven the site and celebrate the heritage of a community.
The story of Brucemore, at its core is the story of three families: the Sinclairs who built it, the Douglases who transformed it, and the Halls who gave it to the community. The wealth of these families allowed them freedom to pursue their cultural and philanthropic interests. Each of these families created a home at Brucemore which reflected their passions.
Today, Brucemore tells the story of these families, showcasing their daily lives. From their home we can picture their comings and goings, hobbies, pets, individual tastes, and styles. We can understand the people and their place in history while appreciating their contributions to the development of the community and the region.
