We had a tour of this old house. They are still undergoing extensive renovations. The guide was fairly knowledgeable. The only question I asked, she didn't know the answer for it.

They squished us all into tiny rooms.. made us watch a too long video of ghost hunters, guide talked way to much about nothing and wasted our time. The house is nothing to look at. Wish I could get my $ back.. and my time.

We wanted to do the investigation. We were told that they would supply the equipment. When we got there, the only thing they supplied was a k-2 meter. Ha! I got a refund immediately and went to the Gribble House instead! They supplies, k-2 meter, emf detectors, temperature readers and spirit boxes! The p-sb7 i believe. Do not waste your... More

This is one of the better historic house tours out there. As an architectural historian, I am hard to please when it comes to these things. Our guide was excellent. The building's elegant Greek Revival style architecture (currently undergoing restoration) drew me in, but the story of the family that lived there made me say "wow!" I took the regular,... More

We took a daytime tour of the house and the guide was not super knowledgeable. It was interesting to hear about the evolution of the house but there was not a lot of historical context provided about it. I would have loved to hear more about the artifacts found during the renovation and the role it played during the war.

Took the daytime history tour. The tours of the this historic and haunted mansion have a well-earned reputation (minimal furnishings, mansion in states of repair and disrepair, shtick). So I expected this. Yet so much more disappointed. We weren't taken upstairs, or to the carriage house. The architecture was barely touched upon. Yet the owner's certificate of lineage to General...

Boring visit. Dingy house. The guide said the house tour is about 40 minutes. The guide spent over 20 minutes in one room going on and on about the family history. The rest of the tour was more boring things in very few rooms.

Horrible!!! The house doesn't even have the original architecture it had been turned into a shopping center and now they're restoring it, terrible tour guide, was more interested in telling us what they were going to do to the house than the history of the house

Even the bitterly cold walk through the neighborhood was a fun adventure. Our tour guide, Nick, was energetic and engaging. He was not at all pushy and, since we were the last tour of the night, was very able to be generous with his time. The Sorrel Weed House did not disappoint. A door opened by itself, to Nick's amazement,... More
