The tour is of the house that was a hospital set up to treat casualties of the war. The smells give some hint as to what it would have been like but they were not really objectionable. The tour included the room where the owners of the house stayed, to the ward rooms, and the surgical room. The tour lasts... More

I rode my motorcycle here with a bunch of other people. We took the tour, tour guide was awesome. The stories and old buildings transport you back in time. Great history of the Civil War. Tour guide was very informative. Must see for Civil War history buffs!!! A++++++

We decided to visit Ben Lomond and the Rose garden on the last day of our vacation. We envisaged a nice stroll around the rose garden but the garden was disappointing really, it didn't look too cared for and was small, in fact 5 minutes strolling around was more than enough. A real shame, the roses looked in need of... More

Can't say enough about Sean the docent, he did an outstanding tour. I had been before, but this time I brought a few friends to share this wonderful historic time piece. He is so knowledgeable and open for questions. My friends had a great time and we continued to talk about our American history and Sean (how great he was!)... More

We came to this historic home around 4pm. The place was closing. But, the docent gave us a quick tour of the place. He was so informative about the civil war home and it's use as a hospital.

We did not get to see the inside of the house due to our time schedule, but the outside was beautiful and so were the grounds. As you walk around you can imagine what it was like back in the 1800s to live here. The plantation is complete with kitchen garden, smoke/spring house, walking garden, and slave quarters. Will come... More

My friends and I live nearby, but had never visited this Historic Site. It is not your average renovated historical building. Instead of setting it up as a home from the civil war era, it is set up as a civil war hospital. You will find empty cots, blood soaked rags and antiques strewn throughout the house complete with the... More

I recently attended a tour of the facility that was themed for the use of the house as a hospital during the civil war. Very interesting. The essences/smells that were placed in the rooms in an attempt to imitate the sickly infections and disease had a powerful impact.

I was very interested in going here, but my kids went "kicking and screaming". They were sure that they wouldn't be interested, but the reverse was true! Tours are at the top of every hour while they are open. Since we were the only ones that showed up for this tour, she told us that it could be as short... More

I was blown away by this place. Fantastic guide gave a thorough and detailed tour of the house. The rooms are made more realistic through the addition of 'scent' that complements the props. You are encouraged to ask questions and try things on, or pick up the props. Loved every minute of the one hour tour. I can not recommend... More
