It is a showcase of early 1900's lifestyle and craftsmanship-a beautiful and hospitable setting for weddings, special events, and meetings. The House offers tours Wednesday through Friday and on Sunday at 1 pm and 3 pm and on Saturday at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm. Also by appointment. Adults-$10 Seniors-$6 Students-$4 Children under the age of 8 are free. We also offer other various discounts. Our tours last just over an hour as the trained docent guide takes groups on a walking, informative tour of the home's 3 floors set up with original family pieces circa 1908. « less

Our tour guide was the great-granddaughter of the second owners of the house - the Caldwells. She was an incredible guide. -- In addition to being very knowledgeable about the house, she also related personal stories about the home and the owners that she had learned from her grandparents and her great-aunt. The house itself is awesome!! The outside reminded... More

The staff is great at laying out the ins and outs of this historic home. As you are looking at all the historic homes in the neighborhood it just wets your appetite to get in one and the Conrad is the answer. We had to leave early and they provided us a quick private tour. The hand fans were a... More

Breathtakingly beautiful home with many personal possessions of the residents. Tour guide was a descendant of the owners and shared family memories. The whole historic district is awesome and would also recommend the ghost walk with David Domine.

Toured the house and found it interesting. The tour guide was a descendent of one of the original owners, so she had some personal stories to tell about the family, which made it interesting. Only complaint was that she sounded rehearsed and rushed. But worth a visit if you like old homes.

Absolutely gorgeous. Amazing history. Great staff. I have both attended weddings there and also catered events there. I would only ask that they would have had a working stove for the latter. But great venue!!

Touring historical homes has always been something that I find educational and enjoyable. Never has a tour been more so than the tour of this home! On Thursday's and Saturday's a family member is usually there to give you the tour. Luckily, we went on a Thursday and were taken back into time with Beth Caldwell, the great great granddaughter...

We found this on Trip Advisor, and recently visited with our daughter. The house is perfectly preserved with amazing woodwork and artifacts. However, what makes the whole experience is the docent, Beth Caldwell, who is the great, great granddaughter of the second owner. Her knowledge and stories helped bring history alive. Highly recommend this for anyone who loves history and... More

This is a really neat home. On the tour you learn how people really lived. We walked around St. James Place ans looked at the homes. Central Park is across from the area.
