The docent gave a wonderfully detailed tour and answered questions. The history of this mansion is fascinating! Great care taken to furnish with authentic period items. Highly recommend this tour.

Since no one else was with me, my docent gave me my own private tour. I was able to ask many questions and receive an in-depth learning experience. The mansion is well-preserved inside and out. They are in the process of doing even more restoration....More

We went to listen to a local historian speak. We could have listened all day. It was wonderful and only $5. They had a lunch served there but that would be cost more so we at at a local restaurant.

Interesting chandeliers in every room. Our docent, Dillon, did a good job of describing the house and its history. Unfortunately, very little of the original furnishing are remaining but they have attempted to get period pieces and acknowledge them.
