Beautiful old mansion with period furnishings. Nicely decorated for the holidays. Docents could be more proactive with historical explanations.
Gorgeous high-style Italianate Victorian time capsule retaining nearly all of it's original furnishings. Holiday decorations are breath-taking!
And I was there when the place was completely dolled-up for the Christmas holidays! But for $13.50 per adult, peeking in a couple of rooms on the first and second floor really wasn't worth the admission price. The docents give good mini-descriptions of each room but I felt like I couldn't stand in front to look in very long because... More

This is one of the best ornate homes I have seen in the United States. Everything was kept in tip top shape. The guide was very knowledgeable and approachable. Highly recommended for everyone.
