We had no idea of the majesty of the house that General George Armstrong Custer created for himself. Amazing attention to details in this reconstruction. The "soldier" park ranger was excellent in his portrayal of a Seventh Calvaryman.

The house is only open during the summer which is too bad. Wish they could make accommodations for us folks who travel off season by being open weekends. From the outside seems li,e it would have been cool.
