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.

For history, this is the best place I think. It wasn't open when I was there in Sept. :( but I have been there before. It's a free will donation and the REAL old west, not the fake stuff!

I grew up in Dodge City and have visited the Home of Stone a couple of times. On trips back my wife and I had talked about visiting and were finally able to take the kids there on our most recent trip. The tour was quite interesting. The guide was very knowledgable. Although a small, local museum, the Home of... More

The home of stone gives visitors a glimpse into that part of the country's history, especially of Dodge City. Touring the inside of the home is an incredible experience - you're really transported back in time with so many original items in the home. Add to that the volume of artifacts on display at any given time - unique tidbits,... More
