The Hammond House and the Paca House are a few blocks away from each other, making it easy to visit both.

We found this tour to be quite interesting, the tour guide very knowledgeable of the home and facts. The furnishings, though most are not from the original home, are from the era and quite nice.

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.
