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!

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 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.

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.
