Unreal to "feel" how the President lived! Except for the classy furniture, the lifestyle was very basic! The cole stove in the kitchen, the basic kitchen utensils and even the basin. It reminded me of how I grew up in the 1960's! Their religious lifestyle...More

I really enjoyed our visit here. It's not a large house but there's plenty to see, not just in the house itself (the contents of which is remarkably complete) but also outside. It will give you a very good and fascinating insight into the life...More
