I highly recommend you take the time to explore this, if you... More

Quick your. Not much to see. The house is quaint and small. The area is beautiful. This would take you about 20 minutes to see.

My wife and I were luck to stumble to the Merrick home on a day when they had an event for the community. We got there just before closing and we were allowed to tour the home. We were very happy to get our timing just right. Otherwise, the house is only open a few days per week. The home... More

We have tried several occasions to visit this site and finally we were able to hit it right and have someone available to give us the tour. Well worth the wait!

We came for an event that included cooking classes, ice cream truck and a gardener showing from how to grow herbs but making your landscape better.

This is a great historic site but they are rarely actually there. I went several times when they were supposed to be open,but the site was actually closed. I picked July 2012, as the date I visited, but this actually happened more than once.
