Been on tours here many times both while in school and after. Always interesting and informative, whether you're on one of their typical daytime tours or their Fall Ghost Tours. Would definitely recommend checking this place out when you have the chance.

The history of this place is fascinating and well presented; it is well worth a visit. The actors/historians in costume really added to the experience.
