Oops Lynn not Open on Mon Tue

We drove back on Thurs. Nice guided tour. Nice story of the original owners, way back in time. Well preserved.

Visited during their Spooktacular night when they held a fright night before Hallowe'en. Just had a ball. The costumed people made the event lots of fun! Our leader was quite good leading us past rats, pirates and cannibals; then there were lots of spiders and ghosts in the graveyard as in the house itself. Thank you for the fun!

This is one of the three historic homes you can buy a ticket for all and tour. Very reasonable and worth doing all three. Tour guides are very good, they give an excellent tour and are able to answer questions. Great mini lesson in history and architectural design.It takes some effort to find since all of these homes are preserved... More

...a very nice historical introduction to the life and times of people who worked hard to maintain themselves and their quality of life. See this along with the Adam Thoroughgood House and Lynnhaven for a really great admission price. I paid $14.00 to see three historic homes with a senior discount. Keep your eyes peeled for signage as you won't... More

I had a personal tour (as I was the only one that was there at the time) so it was extra special. Very thorough and enthusiastic guide. Explained much more than the house - much about the area at the time (much I'd never heard in my history classes). It's worth the time to see if you love history and... More

Over priced for what you get. Grounds are a mess, info was poorly presented, north worth the $8.00 charge per person.

These places are all about the tour guide. In our case she was exceptional - had plenty of great facts and fun stories. Especially a ghost story about the on site graveyard! This was the 2nd of 3 homes we toured for the ticket price. The tour is 30 to 60 mins. and if you are into historic homes its... More

Very interesting tour. Check this one out with two other homes in the area. Take advantage of getting pass for the 3 houses instead of paying for admission at each one. Staff was very informative.
