Fantastic tour! Very informative and great tour guide. Not a dry, stuffy history lesson! Laura was our tour guide, and she was amazing!

This house is full of civil war history and stories of people doing extraordinary things but I found the stories of what followed the war the most interesting. It's compelling history and well told by the guides here.

Tour tells story of family and how civil war battle affected their lives. Very interesting and very passionate tour guide about his subject. Very worth while. Near by park with cannons and markers worth the walk too.
