Docent was well-versed on local history so she did an admirable job explaining the time pieces. One cannot just amble through the house at will. Beautifully restored home gives a flavor of the day. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

A beautiful old home with a unique history. Plenty of Fine Furniture original to the home. Astonishing dioramas created by Chicago Art School student Doris Caldwell. Tour guide Ben Anderson does a great job.
