I had a good chuckle when I was driving by the famous Fairlawn Mansion in Superior the other night. I noticed on their sign that they were giving half price tours on February 29th. I suppose it's their way of celebrating leap year. They go a little further than that, however.

The sign continues to read free admission on February 30, and 31st. Hopefully people get the joke as their obviously never has been or ever will be a February 30th or 31st.

Seriously though, if you haven't toured the Fairlawn Mansion you should. It's a great piece of local history and you can learn a lot not only about the building, but also about the early days of Superior and surrounding areas.

Normal rates for the tours are $10.00 for adults, $8.00 for seniors and college students, and $5 for youth ages 6-17, and free for kids 5 and under. Not a bad way to kill some time on any afternoon, and especially with a discount on this Saturday.
