I wish I could’ve gone without my son because it takes time to go through this precious place of history! My son who is 10 did not appreciate it so I will go again when I have all the time in the world!

House and grounds were nicely prepared. Presentation of history and facts was first-rate. The play was really well done. The staff were helpful and informative, but not at all stuffy, pompous or pushy. Really enjoyed the experience.
