We went through the tour of this historic home with my 15 year old son who recently broke his foot and needed to use a wheelchair.

Only one other couple on our tour, so the guide was able to answer all our questions. Guide was very well informed and did an excellant job. Very nice displays and a great gift shop. I look forward to going back again! The tour is well worth the cost!

I visited this site in March 2012. You get an excellent feel on what life would have been like if you were a run away slave. The information is wonderful too. It's a great place for families.

Not exciting unless you like that sort of thing. If you do this would be a great place to stop and visit.
