STAR announces events for '20s Week

STAR (St. Thomas Activities and Recreation) has planned the following events in keeping with a 1920s theme.

Wednesday, March 29
Take a free torchlight tour of the historic James J. Hill house at 240 Summit Ave. in St. Paul. One guest is allowed per UST ID. Sign up at the Box Office, lower level, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.

A bus (all participants must ride the bus) will leave the arches at 5:30 p.m. and return around 7:45 p.m.

Rugged stone, massive scale, fine detail and ingenious mechanical systems recall the powerful presence of James J. Hill, builder of the Great Northern Railway. Guides lead tours that help visitors imagine family and servant life in the Gilded Age mansion. Completed in 1891, the red sandstone residence was the setting of the public and private lives of the Hill family.
