This is a restored historical site in Tyler. Workmanship is great and it is worth the side trip to view old-time Tyler. Take a camera...we forgot ours, so can't submit photos, but it is well worth seeing.

Last April we were privileged to tour a family home of the friend of a friend that was still alive with memories and possibilites, even though she no longer lived there, having spent her youth there, explaining how she sat at the table doing homework. If you happen to be in Tyler and Ann or her husband Ron are available,... More

They only take cash. I don't have anything else to say because I didn't have the cash to go in but I'm required to write 100 characters. It did look cool, though.

This is a nice afternoon diversion for lovers of old homes or history. The home has been well cared for and one will have an easy time imagining what it might have been like to live there in years past. I recommend this for an impromptu outing.

It was a house in Texas, I guess it was just too hot that day to enjoy much of anything. Fifty words required so I guess that should about do it then.

This 130+ year old victorian mansion is an amazing hidden gem in Tyler. The history behind it will surprise you. Yes, it was the birth place of Sarah McClendon but it was also the center of many happenings that made Tyler grow. The living history tours are top notch and the murder mysteries are a hoot. The night of Jazz... More
