A guided tour is a must to understand this beautiful old mansion. Our guide told a story about this Tidewater mansion, the family that lived here and the era this house shinned. Not to be missed.

The preservation of this mansion is great. The tour guide was full of knowledge and interesting facts. She totally interacted with both my teenage boys and they truly enjoyed the visit.
