The house was absolutely beautiful. Totally worth going. The tour left some to be desired, but they are all volunteers and are very knowledgeable about the house and its former residence.

This house has an amazing story and very unique items . 3 methods of touring the house; audio, personal exploration and docent lead . There are several floors to explore and not ideal for those with walking issues( stairs). Unique gift shop .

Absolutely magical around Christmas time. The guided tours are really interesting and there is alot more history here than you'd expect. Maybe not the most exciting, but absolutely beautiful.

Apparently the locals know all about this. Many said they went there as a child on fieldtrip. Not being from area, we went and fell in love with the beautiful restorations and real antiques in the house. the story of the house is fascinating too.

Beautiful, original old mansion with many original furnishings. It's awesome to see anytime but it's really special when it's decorated for Christmas.
