“One of a Kind Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Quirky self designed house of a local 19th century artist. Has it's own theatre. Strange stairways and strange floor levels. A little claustrophobic. Especially good at Christmas. Call ahead or look on Internet to be sure it's open

“Lovely piece of history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Beautiful piece of history. Unique architecture and wonderful way to learn about how people lived during their day. Transports you right back into their time with furnishings, clothes, learning about the people themselves, the reasons behind why the house was built the way it was.

“unique home, interesting site to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

While this home is old is it unique and beautiful in it's own way. I think everyone should visit not only to see the architecture but also to learn about the interesting ways of life in the house - everything from how they created air and ventillation to the reasoning behind how close the house is to the street. I took my 90 year old grandfather in here and he really enjoyed it as well. Be advised that some places in the home do have very narrow hallways and steep steps but as long as you go slow you shouldn't have a problem. I would say the entry fee at the time of our visit was a bit higher than expected but it was a nice tour overall.

“every local person should see this house at least once.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

draws your imagination into the horse and buggy days. unusual use of living spaces and filled with interesting furniture and artwork. Not really of interest to teens though.

“A House of Wonders!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This home is a home of amazement! Be sure and go at Christmas when it is decorated to the "hilt." There are many oddities there that you won't want to miss.
