The house is interesting as it contains many of Sandburg's personal possessions and the setting is lovely, especially in the Fall when the leaves have color and are reflected in the pond/lake in the front of the property before you walk up to the house. There are wonderful walking trails surrounding the house as well as several interesting out buildings. Dogs on a leash are also welcome and our westie and poodle companions enjoyed the outing as much as our group did. And as a final enticement, I should mention that the site has no admission charge, though donations are welcomed.
