I visited this historic site with a friend. It is free to visit, and there are free guided tours led by volunteers. It is an interesting site, and the Civil War soldier graffiti is worth the look. You will get more out of this visit if you are somewhat educated on Civil War history. The tour guides are volunteers, and not really very informative, so don't expect to learn much from the tour. Their job is more to escort you thru the property. We were only allowed on the first floor of the house, but the reproduction of the attic in the visitor center is the main attraction. You cannot see this actual part of the house on the tour due to instability of the home. You can see the entire site in less than one hour.
