We are planning our second annual craft show and open house on Monday May 28th, Memorial Day, from ten to four. We had such a great time last Memorial Day with a wonderful turn out, we want to do it again! This year we already have more vendors, and more food planned!
Located between Nauvoo and Niota on the bluff, the Cambre House is a beautiful historic house. The house was the first privately owned home in Hancock County on the National Register of Historic places. Built in 1867 by French Icarian Adolphe Cambre, the house has never been extensively remodeled and is like a step back in time. Sisters, Amy and Rebecca own the home and hold events through the summer to help share the house with the public. Painting parties, midsummer movie night, and ghost tours are available from June through October. The property is also available for weddings, reunions, showers and other events. The beautiful outdoor location will have many craft and vendor booths and food for sale on Memorial Day. Free tours of the house will be available all day long. Make plans to spend a relaxing day visiting Cambre House and Farm.
