In 1875, Colonel Samuel West Peel built a marvelous villa tower Italiante mansion on the outskirts of Bentonville, Arkansas. It was a working farmstead surrounded by 180 acres of apple trees. The Peel Mansion is an outdoor museum of heritage roses, perennials, and native plants. Various vignette gardens are interlaced among curvilinear walks and large shade trees creating a most appropriate setting for this great historic building of Northwest Arkansas. Also on the site is the pre-Civil War Andy Lynch log cabin which serves as a gatehouse and Museum Store at the entrance to the grounds. *Tours are available every hour on the hour.* The Peel Mansion Museum & Heritage Gardens offers a variety of event options - wedding ceremony and reception, rehearsal dinners, group luncheons and tours, as well as civic or corporate events. We have the perfect venue for your special event!

While, not much of the house or the furnishings are original, the restoration is as accurate as possible. They even did core samples of the walls to determine paint color and wallpaper in order to replicate it. The furnishings are all accurate to the time...More

And great stories. Volunteers give tours of the property. It is nice to see places like this survive. Love the stories which are always of strong determined people. No hand outs, just hard work and the intelligence to take advantage of opportunities.

I took my two your children on this tour, 4 and 6, and we learned a lot about daily life in the late 1800's. The gift shop is also the original cabin, which is great to see too!
