Romance and relaxation are the topics of a special evening tour and relaxation class at the James J. Hill House—St. Paul's premiere Gilded Age mansion. During the tour, costumed actors will portray some romantic adventures of the Hill House family members and servants, based on excerpts of letters, diaries, and oral histories preserved by the Minnesota Historical Society For those who enjoy the series Downton Abbey, you can imagine how life at the Hill House was quite similar.
After the tour, the visitors and actors will gather in the elegant Drawing Room where life coach Beth Freschi will provide a guided relaxation class focusing on the Loving Kindness Meditation and other relaxation techniques that calm the mind and body.
