Phelps mansion.Beautiful is stepping back in time. I don't think a description would do it justice. Unfortunately I did not get to see any of the shows that are offered but will make sure I do so next time. Lovely staff with an incredible surroundings.

This is an interesting piece of history. The house is well preserved and magnificent. We too had Joe as our guide and he was well informed and very willing to answer questions and to accommodate latecomers. Take the time to visit.
