“Always a treat to visit the Kendricks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The staff at Trail's End creates a new theme each year, so it's well worth making a visit each summer and again for the Christmas open house. Of course, the main furnishings remain in place, but there is always something new from their collection that goes along with the annual theme. The grounds are always beautiful.

“No other residence like this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you appreciate architecture at all, you'll love the historic Trail End home. Built by Senator Kendrick, this palatial home belies the treasures found inside.
From the regal ballroom on the top floor to the then ultra modern laundry in the basement, you marvel at what the rich of the late 1890's briefly called home.

“A Western Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

I am a huge fan of historic homes, and this was one of the best I have been to in awhile. The house is stunning, the views breathtaking, the grounds immaculate. I must have taken 308093 photos (although no flash photography inside), and still revel the thought of looking through them to walk down memory lane. I bought a fantastic book to learn more about this family, and would go back again any time.

“Worth the $2.00 admission.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I love touring historic homes and this one was no exception. The time and effort that went into the construction is impressive. Hand painted walls, rugs loomed to repeat the wall design. An especially large kitchen to make meal prep more efficient. Very meticulous work in the construction and in the continuing restoration and upkeep. I especially loved the third floor ballroom. What parties it must have seen!

“Wonderful piece of sheridan's history. The directors are very knowledgable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Exhibits change yearly, always keeping in theme with what the Kendrick family would have been experiencing when living in the house.
