Pure and sheer beauty and splendor. The house is unbelievably beautiful. The restoration is superb. I was so impressed by the pocket doors and the heating technology! There are a lot of places in the world that could use that. The experience was so soothing....More

Free parking is available behind and in front of the house. Took a free self tour of the first floor of the inside. The house is beautiful inside and out. There is a charge for the second level.

If you enjoy old houses you'll LOVE this. 5 stories, so be prepared to climb stairs. It closes at 3pm so make sure to arrive in time. Last year we missed it by 5 minutes!

An experience you'll long remember. This home was erected in the early 1800s and is still impressive today. Lovely, very large, with innovations rarely found in those days. Guided tour takes about an hour and is worth the small cost. Amazing.

Michael is correct. The tours are hourly. There is a $4 extra charge to see the upper levels or $20 at certain times for the "behind the scenes" tour. All very worth it.
