Tour the Homes at Tryon Farm!

September 19, 2018

Have you been curious about Tryon Farm in Michigan City? Have you always wanted to see the homes on this 170 acre former dairy farm? Well, now is your chance! Tryon Farm is opening up the historic barn and six houses on Sunday, October 7th from 11am – 4pm. AND…it’s a fundraiser for Tryon Farm Institute, a non-profit land trust responsible for environmental education and stewardship. 


What can you expect? 

The historic white barn will feature an art gallery with work by two Tryon Farm residents, Kim Beck and Steve Messamer. There will also be a docent giving introductory talks. This is where you will start and end your tour!

You are welcome to walk the grounds, or a shuttle van will be available from the parking lot to check-in and between each of the houses. A self guided tour and map will be provided and walking is encouraged! Six houses of various styles will be open for you to view. The owners will be present in each of these homes to answer any questions you may have. It is recommended that you start the tour no later than 3pm if you would like to see all six houses.

If you are walking between the houses, plan on spending 90 minutes to 2 hours on this tour and be sure to enjoy the trails as well!



Cost is $35 in advance and $40 after October 5. Cash and checks will be accepted on-site. No children under 16 permitted on the tour. You can purchase your tickets here.

Tryon Farm is located at 1500 Tryon Road in Michigan City, IN. Please park at the Niemann School across the street. It is recommended that you purchase your tickets in advance. Rain or shine.
