My husband and I were visiting the area for the weekend and got to walk through the house when it was decorated for the holidays. So beautiful!! The tour was fun, the dancers obviously worked hard on their performances, good refreshments.

You can't beat a tour in summer or winter. The house is amazing, the decorating beautiful, just a rich history of Oshkosh. The grounds in the summer are beautiful. If you enjoy history and beauty, go visit and take a tour.
