“Historical Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Wonderful house packed with original furnishings, almost too much to take in with one visit. Hand held audio devices make it easy to tour at own pace. On Sundays have a farmers market on the back lawn

“Great Place to Walk Your Pet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have grown up at the Black House, living right down the street as a youngster. There are awesome trails to walk, jog or ride your bike. There are even bags to clean up after your pet at the start of the trail. I have never personally toured the museum, but I have visited the gardens and they are amazing.

“Tucked away treasure!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

If you're a history buff or simply love stepping back in time...Or if you're like my sister and I and adore Downton Abbey....step into Woodlawn and be transported back in time.

“A real disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Bad food, and not even much at that. Five small tid-bits per person for $25 per person. Nice setting though
