Surely a labor of love for the local restoration group! What a nice job restoring this brick home from the 1730 era. Knowledgeable tour guide, and cute gift shop!

The trek to the lakefront dock in the rear of the property was well worth it! The house itself was not open at the time so we just walked around and peeked into the building. It was well maintained from the exterior
