Always enjoy touring "mansions". This one was no exception. Interesting to see how homes were designed in their day and to hear about the characteristics and eccentrics of the owner/builders.

What a lovely restored home this is, and the tour is free. It's worth the time to find parking. It can be done on the same day as the Capitol tour.
