The mansion was beautiful. It was amazing that back then they built this without any of the technology that they use today. The tour guide was just okay. You are not allowed to go into any of the rooms, just peek in from the hallway.

I tour this place every time I bring friends to Jim Thorpe. Amazing! Be prepared to walk up a steep hill to get to it. But its worth it.

Things in this place you may never see anywhere in the world. From history of the owners to the house they built and lived in.

This is the second time I've been. My wife and I went once last September. We talked another couple into going with us.

Guide provided an informative tour- 95 % of house is original contents. Not handicapped accessible for most of the tour- many stairs and narrow passages.

This past fall we took friends here for a bit of history. We were pleasantly surprised how informative our tour guide was and how interesting it was! Highly recommend checking it out!
