This tour was not even close to good compared to several tours I've been on. The young lady guiding the tour was somewhat knowledgeable. It was clear she has given the tour multiple times, but she couldn't answer a basic question, which was... what is the square footage of the mansion? She said she had no idea. After the tour...

Guided tour with Jack. Very informative and took time to answer all questions. Seeing all living quarters was very interesting and Jacks knowledge of the mansion was great. You will climb stairs and go down lots of stairs. I highly recommend tour.

My friend and I took the fascinating tour of this historic home on a hot summer afternoon. Our tour guide, Hollis, a history and religion major at the local university, did a great job describing the history of the family who built and lived in the home. Incredible Civil War era stories, amazing restoration. Lots of opportunities for questions and... More

The tour guide was very nice and knew a lot about the mansion and the history of the city. He was answering all the questions and was fun to listen to. The mansion itself is in great condition, not much furniture on the upper levels. Such a beautiful peace of art and architecture. A must see.

This was a beautiful mansion and toured beautifully. You learn a lot about the family that built this home and when the resided there and when they were forced for a period of time during the unrest between the North and the South. I wish we had toured more mansions in the area.

A beautiful mansion owned by a wealthy Dr. and his large family. They lived with power from coal and gas. Water was collected from gutters. Very interesting and informative tour. 3 stories and a basement.

A previous reviewer complained about the lack of air conditioning, but thank goodness it was fixed a week later when we toured the mansion. The docent was very knowledgeable about the history of the mansion, but I was surprised at the lack of furnishings, which would have helped us imagine what the mansion looked like in the 1860's. Be prepared... More

We had a tour guide from the area who was enthusiastic, articulate and humorous. He had interesting historic information to share and helped us to vision life in the Pre & Post Civil war years. The mansion is well preserved itself. Furnishings are sparse but adequate to give us an idea of life then. The rare city slave housing was... More
