Not only is the Adams house a way to beat the heat of Deadwood, it is a marvel to be seen. The house definitely was way ahead of its time for the town of Deadwood, with phone, electric and servant call buttons! A must see on the trip back to the wild west town.

Not the fanciest nor richest of historical mansions that I have toured, but one of the nicest looking ones I've seen. What makes this tour exceptional is the knowledge the guides have of the people who have lived in the house. Doing this house, the Adams Museum, and the Boot Hill Tour provides an excellent, relatively quick, comprehensive study of... More

Enlightening tour of a beautiful home owned by an early entrepreneur of Deadwood. All original furnishings - very opulent for the era. The guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. A must see for history buffs who want to know more about early Deadwood.

Our guide was fun, and knew a lot about the house and prior occupants. The hype about not being opened for over 50 years is not quite true, as you will learn about on the tour. But all is well, take that with a grain of salt. The house has been preserved/restored well, and is very interesting. No pictures are... More
