Betsy-Tacy Houses & Gift Shop Information
The Betsy & Tacy Houses are currently closed for general admission, and at present we are no longer able to offer private tours (please note that any tours already scheduled will still take place).
Meanwhile, even if you cannot visit us, there are plenty of things to do in here in Deep Valley aka Mankato! You can pick up a map of Betsy-Tacy sites in the mailbox at Tacy’s House (332 Center Street), or download one here, and use it to locate many places you won’t want to miss. Take a walk around both houses and the neighborhood, (the model for Tib’s house is close by), sit on the bench at the top of Hill (Center) Street and take pictures, visit the Carnegie Library, climb the Big Hill and explore The Slough. Maud Hart Lovelace is buried in Glenwood Cemetery, and there is a lovely monument right near her grave.
We are as eager to re-open the Houses as you are to visit, and as soon as that happens, we will post the news on our website and on our social media channels. We can’t wait to see you!
