Visited on a Saturday morning for a tour. The docent meets you in the lobby of the visitor center to take you to the house. The tour itself took about an hour without going to check out the outbuildings. The house is period correct. The...More

Locust Grove is a painstakingly restored late 18th century home, and the attention to detail in the restoration is remarkable. What makes the home truly special, however, is the outstanding tours given by the (mostly volunteer) docents. The colorful stories about the Clark-Croghan families and...More
