I loved everything about this tour and I've been on it more than once! So worth the time to stop and bring the kids along as they have some wonderful things for little people to learn as well as the big people in their lives. For anyone who likes the Victorian era or decorating... this is a major treat! Go,... More

My wife and I were on a fast-paced schedule (we visited several museums in one day because of our ASTC membership). We saw this place and walked around the perimeter and took some photos (no photography allowed inside).

Not much to add - you'll see rooms on two (of the three) floors of the house. Our tour guide presented things in a relaxed, conversational way. There are things about the house that the Friends organization just does not know, so they say so rather than making up some hokey story. Highlight for us (as for many) was the... More

I had lived in Appleton my whole life and hadn't seen this museum. A visit home to see family provided the perfect excuse. Don't wait until you move away!

What a great place to visit on a rainy or snowy day. Especially at Christmas, with it all decorated, beautiful! Go and enjoy.

I have visited the Hearthstone many times. I love the building itself, and the "gift shop" has some fun interactive points of interetest before heading in to the house itself. The tour guides have always been very friendly and informative. Every time I come, I seem to have lots of questions and they answer them to the best of their... More

If you like touring historical homes don't miss this one. The design and architectural grace of this home is outstanding. Great way to spend a few hours.

We visited the Heartstone Home on a Saturday afternoon. We parked on a side street and walked the block to the home, rang the bell and were admitted to the house. Our tour started in the library and continued thru the home. Of all the fireplaces the front sitting room was my favorite. The wood work in the home was... More

Excellent trees on display in the winter! Excellent tour and guide and very informative. We learned a lot about Appleton even though we have lived here our entire lives.

I loved the incredible detail of this historic house. Our guide brought us through most of the house and explained about every room. The only downside is that you don't get to see the entire house. I wish I could have seen it all, whether it was decorated or in shabby conditions I would want to see it anyway. It... More
