Historical family home. Everything has been well preserved. Entrance is only at $12. Nice for a visit if you are near the area. Sucks that photography inside the house is not allowed which is not mentioned at the website though.

The Historical home was gorgeous and I loved that someone lived in it up till 1995. The grounds are beautiful. My only complaint is that the tour was a little too long and no pictures allowed.
