Be sure to watch the video before the tour - very informative and well done. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. A beautiful home with lots of architectural features.

Currently (July 2013) Sandusky is undergoing extensive renovation and closed - but a very pleasant docent made an exception for me and took me on a tour. She provided an incredible amount of information about the history of the place, the presidents who have stayed there and efforts to preserve it.

this is a great place to go for some interesting VA and Lynchburg history. The site also has a small area that is very attractive to rent for smaller events

While we didn't have time to visit the whole site, the stories we heard and the welcome center were great! the boxwoods are amazing to be so old.

Touring the Sandusky home made the Civil War more relevant to me. The guide was excellent and the information, the buildings, and the furnishings.combined to make the tour most interesting.

This lovely 1808 Federal period home was Union headquarters for the Battle of Lynchburg, 1864. Two future U.S. presidents were stationed here. Great museum of medicine for that historic period. We have visited it for special events, which are always fun. Go back in time for an hour!
