We thoroughly enjoyed our too or of the Home of Stone. Tours are free but donations are needed and appreciated. Our tour guide was excellent and realty brought to life the history of this home.

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.

This was a great tour. You get a personal tour of the house. They are very knowledgeable about the house. Some pieces of furniture are original to the house.

The house is well preserved, the tour guide was knowledgeable and many of the furnishings were original. Very interesting and worth the 30-40 minutes it takes for the tour. And it was free!

This was a really neat historic home and the young lady who was our tour guide had fantastic information to share. As with everyone we encountered in Dodge City she was friendly and delightful to talk with.
