We were taken to Blandwood House by a friend. We had a guided tour by a gentleman called 'Matt' who was brilliant. His knowledge and enthusiasm were addictive! Normally the tour takes about 40 minutes - ours took 90 minutes. It was refreshing to find...More

Our guide was exceptional. He explained everything and talked for 1 1/2 hours. He answered all of our questions and could not have been nicer. Take the time and see this treasure.

Blandwood is a beautifully restored historic home near downtown Greensboro. The decor and appointments are period and demonstrate life for the wealthy 150+ years ago. Great way to spend a half day.

Matt was our very knowledgeable tour guide. I think he said he is a Ph.D. student in history. He provided a wealth of information on the historic home itself, as well as much background information on life and events in North Carolina in the 1800s....More

Terrific tour by Matt. The opportunities to ask questions and engage with him was second to none. He knows his subject extremely well, is entertaining and very personable. The house is a fascinating mixture of 1795 farm house, 1820 farmhouse addition and 1846 Italianate mansion...More

This governor's mansion is very well kept and the guide explains everything about it. The facing sitting rooms for guests are particularly unique, having duplicate windows for ventilation and sliding doors for protection against the cold. Interestingly the portraits of the Governor and his wife...More

I was treated to a private tour of Blandwood Mansion since tourists seem to be scarce in early February in this area. ( I say this because I was also alone at the more famous Reynolda in Winston-Salem the day before.) The young Millennial who...More

This home, with the main rooms built in the 18th Century, had nearly 5,400 square feet by 1846. It was the first home of Italianate architecture in the U.S. Restored to its original glory. Guide was AWESOME--knowledge incredible. Check hours before going. No admission after...More
