The house is beautifully restored and provides a great glimpse into the history of the area. Ranger Mike's love of the house is evident in his presentation and the sharing of his knowledge of the house and area made this tour one of the best we took on our vacation. And at only $2 per person, one of the best deals anywhere!

This is a small house which has been restored to some of it's former glory. They are gradually doing more to add to the experience. It's worth a visit if staying in the town.

Ranger Mike's enthusiasm & knowledge of the history of the house heightened the tour. We also had the pleasure of walk through the adjacent Chapman Botanical Garden with our dog. We were surprised that the state parks in Florida are so affordable. $2 per person is a steal.

Learning about the Orman family makes Apalachicola and Florida history come alive! The ranger was a delightful storyteller, and answered our many questions. We visited TWICE during our stay here, the second time with a 10 year old who found it even more fascinating than us adults. We also enjoyed strolling on the grounds and viewing the war memorial.

The house has an interesting history. The Ormans were clearly an integral part of the area's history. The tour is well worth the nominal entrance fee!
