A tour guide dressed in period-costume gave us a tour of the last home of General George Custer before he led the 7th Calvary at their defeat at Little Bighorn. Before taking us inside she gave us basic information about Custer, his wife, and the home. Once inside she took on the role of housekeeper and was true to the... More

This is a great home reconstructed on the site of the original home. You will see how he and his wife modified the orginal plans to make it into a home for entertaining.

Visiting this area of the country is new to me... I grew up in the east, so seeing things I read about is not new, but being able to hear about them from people who have researched the area is new and enlightening. At the Custer house there are many artifacts that actually belonged to Custer or his wife when... More

Somewhat disappointed that it was mostly a recreated home, but there are some original artifacts and it was nonetheless very interesting to see the home and furnishings. You can also take a nice walk around to view the stables and barracks, and walk down to the river (or take a much longer walk on the paths if you wish). The... More

Yes, everything is a re-creation, but there are a number of artifacts used by the Custers here. I especially liked the General's writing desk! We always bring out-of-town guests here, at least those who are interested in history, and I encourage any locals who haven't seen the Custer House to do so. When you go, imagine that you got there... More

A true step back in time. Tour guides dress up as calvary men and treat you as they would in the 1700s. The house had a few original artifacts, and is decorated to the time period.

Wonderful historical fun in the park with plenty to do. Different events during the year--including Christmas decorations and Halloween fun. Well with the time.

So much history. Loved the fact that the guides are in authentic uniform and spoke in the present as 1885 once we entered the house.

Taking a living history approach, the guides for the Custer home bring the past to life. We enjoyed developing a deeper understanding of Custer and his family and their life on the frontier. The home includes a few artifacts that belonged to the Custers themselves. The guides provide great context for the furnishings in the home both for the Custers... More
