“Get there before it closes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Due to the dire financial strait of the State of Caifornia this wonderful historic mansion will be closed to the general public starting on July 1, 2012. Hopefully some Foundation will step in and keep it open. An excellent tour of the mansion is provided with the admission price. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the mansion and of the indiiduals that occupied it. You really should make an effort to see this gem before it is closed.

“A California classic home of the wealthy 100+ years ago.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Provides an interesting view of the life of Sacramento's privileged classes during the era 1880 - 1920. A beautiful old home, though many rooms are largely empty of furnishings.
