This historic home is well kept and offers a venue unlike any other in the area. It was built in the 1800's and is quite Victorian. It is well furnished but not stuffy. It is a great place for a small gathering-probably less than 50-60 maximum. The grounds are nice and the outdoor porch offers yet another place gather. They... More
