What I most liked about the home was how much was original to it. It isn’t often that a historical home is kept in its original location with so much original furnishing and contents, but that is what makes it special.

I thought this was be a "tour" down the halls looking through plastic doors. I was extremely surprise that there were 2 tour guides that told the history of all the occupants who had lived in the house, and you actually get to go into each room and even touch some of the memorabilia.

A trip into the past complete with items from the period. Knowledgable staff, free but donation box available w/no pressure. The "ghost" experiences were very interesting.

This was a good stop. You get a personal tour by a county worker dressed in the era. It was informative and in depth of the two families that lived and owned the Stone House.
