Absolutely one of the gems of the Mid West. The home has spectacular history. The grounds are like being in Europe. Acres of beautiful gardens, statuary, fountains, and ponds. There is even an authentic Japanese garden. For the adventurous there are trails. Once we brought the kids, dog and had a lovely picnic. There is always something new to see... More

My wife and I went there and it was okay. It was more for a women taste than a mans. The flowers look pretty.

This is a home of a super rich family of their time. They were in the newspaper business. They supported the arts and crafts movement. They loved hand made products with beauty and a purpose. There is lots of hand carved wood. The house tour is of the first floor only. The grounds are nice. They were generous and they... More

The house was not open for tours on Saturday, but we had fun just looking at the outside and imagining what it would be like to live there. We walked around for about 2... More

The house and story that goes along with it are interesting. It is a family home with family stories. There are a lot of unique... More
