10:30–11:30 a.m. | Tour Terrace Hill—An architectural marvel, Terrace Hill was built by Des Moines millionaire Benjamin Franklin Allen, who hired renowned Chicago-based architect William W. Boyington to make his dream house a reality. After its completion in 1869, Allen lost his fortune and sold his home to Frederick Marion Hubbell. Hubbell heirs donated Terrace Hill to the state of Iowa in 1971, and it has been the official residence of Iowa’s governor since 1976.
