Signage outside tells you the history of it's ownership, and the settlement of the area. Lovely old mansion, figure 30 minutes or so to walk around as you do some hiking in the area.

This was very nice & amazingly constructed. However, only the exterior is available for viewing during the weekend. Visit during the weekdays & see the whole Enchilada.

We didn't find it very impressive. There were different hikes being offered and we walked around the grounds.
