This was part of our Land and Legacies Tour and was made even more interesting by the background stories that our tour guide Mike had told us. We loved seeing all the beautiful feral horses wandering on the grounds.

For anyone interested in seeing America's Downton Abbey, this is a great place to start. Take a look behind the curtain to see how the wealthy and famous lived. It's an experience worth sharing.
