NIU Annuitants to visit Tinker Swiss Cottage

Space remains for the Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association’s tour of Rockford’s Tinker Swiss Cottage and gardens and a visit to the Briggs Mansion on May 8.

The group will enjoy lunch at Rockford’s Stockholm Inn. The Tinker Cottage tells the story of Robert Tinker and the widow of John Manny, who invented the Manny Reaper. The Briggs Mansion was recently restored to its former 1880s elegance by the Raleigh family beginning in 2005.

The group will depart DeKalb at 8:15 a.m. for the tour and lunch.
