Walked around the area close to the Geunther House after we had a delicious breakfast at the House. The houses are generally well kept and retain the ambiance of a long ago era. Well worth a stroll through the neighborhood of Victorian homes.

We walked around this area and it seemed that it is an up and coming neighborhood but it isn't quite there yet. It appears to be a town that is being gentrified. We saw some stunningly beautiful, remodeled southern mansions but only a few feet...More

Edward Steves Homestead is worth the visit. A very interesting home from 1870. Tour in less than hour. Historians onsite to provide deep insider information. Fiesta gowns were on display and they were very interesting. Parking is available across the street from the home.

The homes are not open for tours. It's a neighborhood self walking tour so I presume you can go at anytime before dark.

We didn’t see a visitor center- we walked from the Riverwalk and all around the area looking at the historic homes.
