Everything in this mansion is original; therefore, no photos or touching are allowed. The guide was very good and we were surprised at how wealthy Packer was. It is a climb if you wish to visit the house. Cost was $9.00 per person (senior rate)....More

This place is amazing, I love woodworking and if you do this is a must see. You don’t find this anymore anywhere. If you want to see where and how antiques “lived” back then this is the place!!! Everything is so perfect.

Much history if you like to learn. What a view once you're up top. The parking isn't coconvenient. The stairs might be easier. Worth the cost for a tour. Enjoy
