“One of my favorite places”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

I visited the Jennie Wade house for the first time as a kid and my mom told me that we were related to Jennie on her side of the family. Then I got to take my kids there and share this piece of family history with them as well. I love this house and the story. It is a little creepy in the basement, but what old basement isn't creepy? The tour is very informative and it is a great experience for everyone.

“Very informative!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We had a young female tour guide and she was so passionate about her talk and very well-spoken. You could see this was not just "a job" for her, she was very interested in telling the story of Jennie Wade. Even put my finger in the bullet hole-hopefully a wedding prosal will happen in a year!
