I have taken this tour three times including the Victorian Christmas event. Always enjoyable and informative but my last visit seemed to drag as the tour guide talked and talked and talked some more. About an hour standing in pretty much one spot. A bit...More

Went here to chaperone a middle school field trip. Lots of history here and rumor has it that it's haunted as well.
