The Alden B. Dow Home and Studio wants to ensure the highest quality experience and safety for our staff, volunteers and guests. With Covid-19 infection rates escalating to record numbers we are suspending tours beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17th through to the end of February.

Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe and healthy.
