We arrived in time for the 11 am tour on a Friday and there was no one else there. We got a private tour all to ourselves. The docent was nice and knowledgeable. The kids like old houses and this one had lots of interesting features, including a secret door! As of July 2016 they now allow non-flash photos inside... More

The Hay House was quite interesting. Our young tour guide spent more time of the hsitory of the families - reading the timeline on the wall. Didn't sayy alot about the details of the work in alot of areas. The Hay House has many steps but is worth seeing. Gift shop is decent but small.

If you like to visit historic old homes with grand moldings, then this home is worth a visit. The home is located in the downtown area, and has been recently restored. With tall ceilings, decorative plaster moldings, and lovely woodwork, it is worth a visit.

Beautiful home with old and new artifacts from the different owners. Great items that have been acquired throughout the years, including slave dresses which, in my opinion, impressed me more than the other things because they were more authentic. Now, here is the kicker. The house features a huge stained glass window. Ok- Why was Lord Byron's face at the... More

The Hay House was amazing. The first level of this Southern Mansion has been restored with historic accuracy. The guided tour is well-worth the price. I was most intrigued by the unique engineering and construction features of the house. Would love to re-visit once the upstairs is fully restored.

Hourly tours of one of the most interesting mansions in the south. The mechanicals were fabulous The architecture is amazing and the staff were informative. Restoration is ongoing. Spent the extra couple of dollars to see the upper level. If the behind the scenes tour is available, take it. It was not available to us, but based on what we... More

This house is absolutely amazing - the things that they thought of that were so ahead of their time are astounding. Everything has been gorgeously restored or original. Our guide was so knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions about everything (our family had members aged 7 to 69 on the tour and she was so kind to fill... More
