“No one was there!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were in Dodge City on Memorial Day. I had found the Mueller-Schmidt House (Home of Stone) on tripadvisor's list of things to do in Dodge City. The website for this house (Ford County Historical Society) showed the hours as from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Well, we were there on Memorial Day, and the house was closed. No one home. We called the number listed on the website and got a recording saying to leave a message. Very disappointed. Website needs to be changed, or someone should be there, or at least answer the phone.

“Stone house very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Got to see the Stone house after finding it on the trolley tour. It was a little disappointing that the home had been modernized, but not until the 1940's Many old features are still intact like the transom windows, but the original glass frnt doors are gone. Docent was VERY knowledgeable and had some REALLY good stories to tell.

“Best place in Dodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

For history, this is the best place I think. It wasn't open when I was there in Sept. :( but I have been there before. It's a free will donation and the REAL old west, not the fake stuff!
