The tour was very informative regarding the German architecture of this facility and their way of living in and around the building, also the construction aspects of the building. The building has been given historic status.

Well worth a visit. The guided tour takes about an hour. Note that there is no associated parking so you have to find a place on your own. Very good docents answering questions and showing their enthusiasm for this colonial German home.
