We knew nothing about Chief Vann before our visit. We learned a lot from the introductory film. The house was very interesting and our guide was very informative. The out buildings were also very interesting. Well worth a visit.

Unfortunately, the Chief Vann House is closed on Tuesday. The hours of operation are Thursday - Sunday 9 am to 5 pm. Maybe you could hold off your trip until Thursday?
