“Beautiful Home & Property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

On our continuing day of exploration, we made our way up to Grey Towers. My friend being from the region was curious about it as well since she didn't even realize it was here.

It was pretty heavy traffic when we got into Milton. We arrived around noon time.

There are markers that alert you that you're coming close to Grey Towers. Be advised though that the sign leading you to it is on your left (driver's) side & it's not a big sign. The main street veers right, but you go to your left on a narrower road. Wide enough still for 2 way traffic though.

Pulling up to the sight there is ample parking. The home & property is amazing! They do have hourly guided tours, but we didn't do it on this visit. Just walked around this amazing property. When you're on the property you feel as if it's the only place in the area. It's recessed in Milton quite nicely. Guess with it being on 102 acres it's understandable. LOL!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Worth a stop if you're up in the area for sure.

“Governor Pinchot's vacation home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We visited Grey Towers on the 4th of July. The added bonus that day is they hold an ice cream social, for free, on the grounds starting at 2:00. The home is beautifully restored, and the views from the grounds are stunning. I had been through Milford many times and somehow failed to put tis on my list of things to do. The tour guides were wonderful and the history lesson gleaned from the tour was exceptional. If you like historical sites, you will enjoy Grey Towers.

“Interesting Learning Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Wow, did not know that Gov. Pinchot was such a great environmentalist and all around "Good Guy." Wish more Politicians today were like him. Beautiful grounds. If you like history then add this to your list of places to visit.
