The film they showed us before the tour was very informative. The house was a long term hotel set up for 1820's to 1860's. I enjoyed the house and our guide.

This is an old house from the 1700s and is in a beautiful state of preservation as an early 19th century boarding house. Fascinating history and stories. So glad we visited.
