The first portion of the house was built in 1803 and was then bought by a couple who were children of convicts. It was continually expanded over the years as they had 10 children. The house is fully furnished with period pieces and porcelain. Both the story of the house and of the owners and their family are very interesting. They have guided tours throughout the day, but then they allow you to roam around on you own. We both enjoyed it.
