Tours led by young people that are very knowledgeable in the history of the Mansion. The gift shop has outstanding greeting cards and other nice gift ideas. There is nothing I didn't like about the area or location.

The house is gorgeous but if you like me, you'll love the gardens the most before you ever go in! They were setting up for a wedding on the grounds. I am sure it was a beautiful place to get married.

We were given a fantastic tour around with a first class guide. This was filled with History and i recommend that anyone who visits Laramie goes to see this. There is not much else. Like many "wild west" towns they have not saved their heritage sadly!

History comes alive in this carefully restored Queen Anne Victorian built by a prominent pioneer family. It is now a treasure of High Plains History, not to be missed.

You will enjoy seeing the painstaking restoration of the Ivinson family home. It is lovely and if you are into period furnishings this is your place to be. The history of the family and town given by tour guide is also great.

This place is run by volunteers and the lady who took us on the tour was excellent. If you are stopping off in Laramie this is a must see. It is full of history and you really should not miss it. Quality place run by quality people

I enjoyed the lovely Ivinson home for its peek into the way people lived 100+ years ago. Our docent was wonderful and I enjoyed her description of the pieces in the home.

We got here on a Sunday and the place was closed! Gardens were nice though and worth walking around.

This is a beautiful old mansion! The docents were very knowledgable and helpful. I like visiting places where the people who work there know what they are doing and like their jobs!
