The picture shown above is part of the Merrehope experience, but it is actually the FW Williams home that sits next to Merrehope. If you can come in December you get the Trees of Christmas, which is a highlight of site. Not a great neighborhood.

Stopped in last Spring. The house is locked even during business hours; you must ring the doorbell. Admission charge is modest. The big antebellum white house is Merrihope. It is most fully renovated, and is exceptionally nice. It was on the site originally. The docent...More
