Like stepping back in history over 200 years. The staff are the best you get a tour and they are so knowledgeable. It is so interesting. I spent about an hour looking at the house grounds and animals. The gift shop is also very nice

On Saturdays just across the street is a small, but interesting Farmer's Market. While we are shopping, the boys, now 13 and 11 play here a lot. Real nice historical place.
