Will was our guide and did a great job showing us around. Telling us the interesting history of the building. It is rather a big mansion and our tour lasted an hour. If you are interested in history and architecture, you should vist this mansion.

The house looks a bit tired from the outside, but it's well worth to take a tour (every hour on the hour), because you get a really good idea of what life was like for the occupants at the end of the 18th century. Will, our guide, took his time in showing us the rooms and answer questions.

It was a beautiful home that was truly spectacular inside. The 50 minute tour was very informative about past residents of the home and the history of each room. Pro tip: summer tours are on the hour and there was no reason to arrive more than a few minutes early.

Beautiful house with elegant furnishings. The gardens are beautiful. We learned a great deal about the day to day life of colonial America. The gift shop was small but the clerks there were very friendly and accommodating. Lovely ladies who added to our enjoyment of the day.

If you go when there's a tour, you''' get a fantastic view of life in the colonial period and insight into the day-to-day lives of those who built and lived in the home.

My girlfriend and I have a habit of checking out historic houses wherever we go. This one had a great tour full of fascinating history. I particularly like all the pieces that were tied to local and national history. We were there during Christmas, and we got to see how they might decorate for Christmas and learn how that relates...

I'm not one to take tours, I prefer self guided . But I have to say I really enjoyed the tour. Building has a rich history for many reasons that I won't go into. Well worth visit.
