Like paying to see a rummage sale. Tour guide was uninterested and nothing really worth seeing. Not even a restoration as tons of stuff was from different decades.
My wife, daughter, and son-in-law all went for a tour of the mansion. We walked up to the front porch and my wife rang the bell in accordance with the sign.
