Beautiful hpuse

Lovely place. Must see... I found the children room quite creepy but I guess that was a thing back then... The ladies that give the tour definitely know the house history!

Very nice well maintained older estate with interesting memorabilia, especially in our case, a display of heirloom seeds for sale. Even though the museum was closed on the day we were in Georgetown, a local from a gift shop offered to call and see if we could be accommodated and were invited up with directions on how to get on...

The house was wonderful. It was sadly closed when we were there but we looked in the windows and the outside was so pretty. I love houses like this and could just have walked right in and lived there. The sunroom was really something.

The house is beautiful and being that I grew up in the area I have been on the tour before. It was a good thing, since I knew more about the house and the Hamills than the tour guide. There was often silence as he was trying to figure out what to say, like "this is the kitchen"... okay.... so... More

The Hamill House was recommended to us by the Visitor Information Center we found as we entered Georgetown. The Center called and the Hamill House was opened just for us. They are usually closed in the winter. We had an extremely private tour. The history of the house was most interesting. The staff member who showed us around was excited... More

Businessmen built fortunes and created jobs. Politicians were, then, as now, well, politicians. That's what Mr. Willaim A Hamill was: a silver investor, the tour guide tells you, but then he goes on to explain: he hang around with politicians, was one of the first state senators, the Governor nominated him to be the Railroad commissioner... All this in between... More

I LOVED touring historic homes and I've done MANY! This one would be in my top 5! Pat, our guide, was beyond amazing! SUPER nice guy and very educated on the place. He knew the answer to every question we asked! He was sweet. Our son was beat up tired (13 years old) and didn't have another tour in him... More

Excellent tour and gorgeous house! The guide was very knowledgeable about the house but also about the history of Georgetown and that really brought everything to life. We'll definitely go back again!

This is a beautiful house and you can experience how the rich lived back in the 20th century! Beautiful decor and fascinating to see just what money could buy you in the early frontier days.
