Beautiful home and great tour. Very helpful to understand the national/international impact of a local business man. Worth the expense ($10 for adults; on the hour).

Enjoyable and educational tour. They have done a remarkable job restoring and refurbishing this beautiful historic home. The water entry gardens are lovely and worth a walk through.

The staircase in this house was amazing. Beautiful house. I recommend going as it was only nine dollars a person.

We stopped today, after going to the Visitor's Center. This home presented a wonderful step back in time. Our tour guide did a very good presentation. A must see if you are in Madison.

Nice easy stroll of the property without the tour pressure and the staff are very knowledgeable. Nice piece of history which still stands as it did then.

We stopped late on a Sunday afternoon and snuck into the last tour. Well worth your time. Mr. Lanier was an important historical figure. But the home tells an important story around design and great construction.
