On a street of interesting old homes, the Gordon-Roberts House stands out and is well worth a tour. The architecture and furnishings are lovely, and the guide was entertaining and very informative. Really enjoyed the time in this lovely old home.

A wonderful house museum, beautiful and with great tours. Exhibits change often, it was World War I when I went. Our guide did a great job explaining everything so we could understand it.

We arrived into Cumberland 9pm on Friday for the weekend and with the Gordon-Roberts house only open Wednesday through Saturday, we headed to the house mid-Saturday morning as this would have been the only day possible to visit. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived to...More

we had a "high tea" at the mansion, then a tour of two of the floors. They have quite a large amount of period pieces, very few that actually belonged to the Gordons or Roberts. It was all displayed very well.
