Very interesting tour!

We were a few minutes late & they still let our group of 6 join the tour. Our guide was informative & made me want to know more about the Clay family.

This is a beautiful home with some amazing features for the time, like closets and inside bathrooms. They have a lot of period pieces to really give you an idea of what it was like back in the 1860's. You learn a lot about the local history and the views are beautiful. One thing to be aware there are a... More

My husband, sister, brother-in-law and I recently visited White Hall. Even if you are not a "history freak" like me, I think you would still enjoy this tour, which is about 30 minutes long. Our guide was a lovely and knowledgeable woman who really brought the former owners of this home to life. What is unusual for a home built... More

White Hall has a ghost walk during October. Many of the rooms in the house have reenactors to talk about life during the early 1800s. Last year, I visited with my grandkids and they enacted a shooting on the back lawn. Cider and Cookies were offered after the tour, as part of the tour. It was fun.

Our host, who teaches at EKU, was VERY entertaining and helped bring the house to life. I love this little local gem and recommend it to many visitors.

We had a quick stop for our grandson to visit. Really peaceful and relaxing. Lots of room for him to run around.

If you aren't interested in history, this place is worth a visit just for the aesthetic. The house was gorgeous, and the scenery around it was just as beautiful! I would be satisfied to just live in the cooking building. Unfortunately, I did not get to tour the inside, but I imagine it's gorgeous. Aside from that, there is a... More

This place was so beautiful that it almost made me want to go back in time to live there. This is how I want my house to look. I hope that next time I am able to go when it is open so that I can actually take the tour.

Even though my group of friends and U were not able to have a tour because it was closed during our visit, the surrounding landscape and buildings were prestige. I have heard good things about how significant White Hall is to the community of Berea and I will soon return during their hours of operation to learn more about Cassius... More
