“time capsule of life during the Victorian Era”
Filled with original furnishings, artwork, diaries, clothing and household items, the Cottage is a rich time capsule of life during the Victorian Era. The Cottage is also one of only a handful of Swiss-style homes remaining in the United States. Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum and Gardens preserves, protects and interprets Rockford's authentic history, heritage and culture to promote community and economic vitality.
The Tinker Swiss Cottage is easily one of the most interesting historic homes I've ever visited! This ornate 27-room cottage was built in the 1860s on the limestone bluffs overlooking Rockford, Illinois’ Kent Creek. From the outside it’s easy to see the detailed Swiss influence on the home, but once inside the design is even more delightful and inspiring.
