Even on an extremely rainy day the house and surrounding grounds are so beautiful. I was so disappointed that the hours for touring the inside of the home is only on limited hours and days. Nonetheless, the grounds and exterior are worth the drive, and historical markers very interesting if you are in the area.

History of the most important part of the Civil War. Where the native Chickamauga Georgia, Chattanooga families gathered to form their troops. The home and grounds are spectacular.

self guided tour on Saturday afternoon was nice, but wished someone had been there to give us a little tour and background information about the place. It has a lot of history to the area and the Civil War and needs to be preserved.

This mansion is open for tours between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Had a chance to tour last Saturday, and found this circa 1847 house to be full of interesting items. This felt more like a home, than being full of museum quality furnishings, and it was nice for a change of pace. There's a nice printed guide that you... More

The mansion is closed for remodeling but you can walk the grounds. Plaques along the way explain what you are seeing and give insight to the time period. Beautiful spot.

Dates back pre-Civil War. Still a beautiful place to visit! Rumor has it that during the Battle of Chickamauga the surgeons had a stack of human limbs piled up outside the windows from all the soldiers who became amputees because of the war. It was a little bloody there in September 1863!
