This house is gorgeous inside and out. Perfect time of year to go is late Spring/Early Summer as the garden is in bloom. The house has a lot of antiques in every room...the only bad thing is you can't get close enough to view things (as staf is afraid of it breaking and such...as well as they converted part of the house into offices which takes away the charm.

This is a home turned museum. My students loved all the artifacts and the glimpse into history it provides.

This was an interesting tour. The young man who showed us around was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all the questions from the group. Well worth the trip!
