Great place to learn more about the awesome Columbia River! Do you have any idea how vessels have sunk trying to enter this river? The guy who built this awesome house prevented a lot more of them!

We went here for the tour and the Traditional Tea and Plum Pudding. It was great. Although we weren't crazy about the plum pudding, the experience itself was well worth it, and getting to walk through the beautiful, old home was fantastic. I would highly...More
