Unfortunately, many of Flint's beautiful old grand homes were lost to the construction of I-475 and the college/cultural area. This home was lucky to survive and is beautifully restored to allow us to step back in time. Although I am a lifelong Genesee county resident and LOVE local history, my first visit to the Whaley House was just this year.... More

This beautiful Gilded Age home showcases Flint's history in a family friendly way! I am a big history buff and there is always something new to see because they rotate their exhibits. The house itself is full of artifacts and on tours the docents do an amazing job of bringing the past to life. The entire first floor of the... More

Take the docent tour and do not go through the house on your own because you will miss everything. The docents will explain where the Whaley family fits in an ear filled... More

This was our first stop when we visited Flint. We made it for the noon tour and my husband and I were the only two on the tour. We had one guide tell us about the lower level and a second guide tell us all about the upper level. Both guides were super friendly and very knowledgeable about the home... More

Ok, I actually haven't gone inside for quite a few years, but with the Christmas season coming up I'd like to make all of you Tripadvisor readers aware of this place. Go to the website and find out which dates are available during the holidays to see this place with all of the victorian holiday decorations. You'll be glad you... More
