This was a good stop. You get a personal tour by a county worker dressed in the era. It was informative and in depth of the two families that lived and owned the Stone House.

We thought that we were just going to pop in, look around, & then head home but we wound up with a very informative tour led by a very nice gal in time period clothing. We learned a lot about the family & about several items in the house that we had no idea how they were used or what... More

This was a great tour. You get a personal tour of the house. They are very knowledgeable about the house. Some pieces of furniture are original to the house.

This is a neat diversion. It is a historic building that has been nicely preserved. it isn't perfect, big or large budgeted but is a neat slice of history and a pretty quick stop that is expertly narrated by a live tour guide. Our tour guide was great. She was knowledgable and had a sense of humor and wasn't just... More

This home was built by a wealth family in 1880's and over the following years lived in by two families. Lots of photographs and original furniture and decor. The home was renovated in the 1940's with indoor plumbing and a "modern kitchen". The carpet is over 100 hundred years old. Docents offer lots of informative facts about the construction and... More

The house is well preserved, the tour guide was knowledgeable and many of the furnishings were original. Very interesting and worth the 30-40 minutes it takes for the tour. And it was free!

This was a really neat historic home and the young lady who was our tour guide had fantastic information to share. As with everyone we encountered in Dodge City she was friendly and delightful to talk with.

We were in Dodge City on Memorial Day. I had found the Mueller-Schmidt House (Home of Stone) on tripadvisor's list of things to do in Dodge City. The website for this house (Ford County Historical Society) showed the hours as from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Well, we were there on Memorial Day, and... More

Got to see the Stone house after finding it on the trolley tour. It was a little disappointing that the home had been modernized, but not until the 1940's Many old features are still intact like the transom windows, but the original glass frnt doors are gone. Docent was VERY knowledgeable and had some REALLY good stories to tell.
