The last of the summer weekend self-guided tours at the Felt Estate has been cancelled, according to mansion’s website.

The Aug. 20 event was dropped due to staffing issues.

Self-guided tours are normally Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday due to the busy weekend schedules that have the grounds booked with private events. To help meet the demand for visits during the summer, the Felt Estate set aside three weekend dates for the tours. There were tours in June and July.
