You'll hear nothing about Fillmore as president (a slight disappointment)--it's all about the house and the time he and his family lived here. What amazed me is how people in this time period were able to be reasonably comfortable in such a small space (some...More

Millard Fillmore. There are four stops on the tour, and they each contain items previously owned by the former president. On the day we visited there were four docents, and they varied greatly in their presentation quality. The presentation in the front where we received...More

I was able to arrange a private tour on a Friday. Docent Kathy was very informative and friendly. We were able to play Millard's daughter's piano and had our picture taken with a life-sized cutout of President Fillmore. The guide directed questions towards our son...More

We, too, tried to visit... Emailed earlier in the day to see if we could get a special tour since we weren't sure we'd get there by 4:00. Didn't hear back (until the next day), so cut out other planned stops to make it in...More

I’m conflicted about my visit to the Millard Fillmore Home. I understand that the docents are all volunteers of the East Aurora Historical Society and they are all very nice and very hospitable they just don’t seem extremely knowledgeable about Millard Fillmore. The first 2/3rds...More

A great little attraction. Informative docent makes it fun and educational, and it's the only home existing built by hand by a president! If you are in the area make the time and stop.

Millard Fillmore is not on anyone's list of top ten presidents. The tour of this house was unexpectedly interesting. The tour lasts an hour and the house is small. But after the tour you have a much better understanding of Fillmore's place in history. My...More
