First of all, I have to say that yes, it is in a rough part of town. But you don't need to worry about that, because you don't have to go traipsing around through the streets. It is really easy to find and the people are very nice. The only disappointing thing about it is that you cannot see most... More

I visited Cherry Hill while it was under renovations and cant wait to return when it's complete. The history alone is worth the trip. The number of artifacts is incredible! I thank the 5 generations who lived in the home for being horders. So many interested items. I could tell there were spirits in the house, but nothing obvious to... More

Cherry Hill might be a local attraction but the traditional boring house tour has been given a boost with innovative programming, multi media elements and excellent guides.

The staff does a good job of making up for the state of the house currently. When we last visited, most of the belongings were packed up in preparation for renovations. Staff would describe what used to be in a room, which was a bit strange having to rely on your imagination, but there was enough in the basement in... More

The house is currently undergoing a major restoration process and therefore the house tour focuses on the restoration process and why the house needs to be restored. The tour provides a unique opportunity to see a historic house in the middle of a major restoration. The tour guide was fantastic in explaining the history of the family and why it... More

I've been to Cherry Hill twice. It was OK the first time, but just boring the second. It's just an old house with old artifacts like stoves, furniture, etc. Not really worth the admission price.
