Iowa’s First Gentleman Kevin Reynolds will host a barbecue at Terrace Hill on Thursday, August 3 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Guests will get a chance to meet and chat with the first gentleman, explore the first and second floors of the Residence, wander the gardens – which are truly lovely in late summer – and enjoy delicious food prepared by the Terrace Hill chef.

The menu will consist of a traditional summer spread of hamburgers, brats, gourmet side dishes, and desserts.

Reservations are $40 per guest + processing fees and are available on Eventbrite at or by calling the Terrace Hill office at 515-281-7205.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Terrace Hill Partnership, the sole non-profit organization that supports necessary conservation and restoration projects for the Terrace Hill building and grounds.
