If you like to see great homes of the past this is a must do in Amarillo,Texas. This was the home of Don and Sybil Harrington and it contains a fantastic collection of memorabilia of the famous family.

We are spending the weekend in Amarillo and would love to tour this house. Disappointed that tours are only available Tuesday & Thursday.

I always enjoyed this place as a kid, its another part of Amarillo's History, and its a big, nice, classic American Home! Its a history lovers spot!

A beautiful home with lots of history in it. You will enjoy this historic home located downtown Amarillo. They do tours but only 6 people at a time and they don't make any exceptions. Very much worth seeing this home.

I have been there once. The home is really nice with period furnishings. The tours are limited so plan this carefully

This "preserved not restored" home is well worth a visit. The free tour allows you to not only see this amazing home but learn small details that makes the tour so special. Tours are limited to 4 people and provided by 2 extremely knowledgeable docents....More

The preservation of this period mansion gives visitors a memorable insight into the home of its wealthy, well connected, cultured owners. A walk through the home is a walk through design history as well as through social history.
