The house has been carefully and respectfully restored over the years. Curators use photographs from Whitman's residency to place original contents and remodel with similar wallpaper, fixtures, and furniture.

A very intersting historical house with a great story. Our docent Dick was very nice and gave us a great tour. Call ahead before going to make sure there are tours available and make an appointment - the tour size is limited.

After lunch with the family we decided to drive around and find the Walt Whitman house. It is not in a bad section at all, just an empty part of town. Luckily the place was open but it did take a little knocking and ringing...More
