A dicent led tour of a three story victorian with information about the house, surrounding area and day to day living in the 1800's and early 1900's. Very informative and the house itself it a great restoration.

Great tour comparing with tours in larger cities than Leadville. We had a great knowledgeable guide: the gentleman from Mississippi who led us through and pointed out things for us. He also dealt well with questions. The whole place is fascinating
