LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- A historical home in Lafayette held its first brunch to celebrate Easter Sunday.

The Fowler House donated the proceeds from the event to the 1852 Foundation to help with the cost of the home. This is the first time the owners have hosted an event after making restorations to the house, which included finishing the kitchen area and putting in additional bathrooms.

Those in attendance enjoyed a breakfast buffet and mimosa bar offered by the event coordinators.

Event Marketer Felicia Dale said this money will help with the expenses.

"The profits from the event will go back into the 1852 Foundation which is a non-profit that keeps the house running and keeps it restored," Dale said.

Foundation President Matt Jonkman said a lot of work needed to be done before inviting people inside.

"Everything we've done includes updating paint, a lot of scraping, a lot of things to be cleaned," Jonkman said. "The woodwork was restored along with the windows."

The Fowler House will be hosting more brunches for Mother's and Father's day later this year.
