“Hints of History”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

It is definitely worth popping in to see how two of Abingdon's early families lived. The house is charming; anyone who enjoys history houses will find it worth their while. You might even see a unique feature or two, like the built-in sick room in the parents' bedroom.

“Self guided, but interesting Museum”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

A glimpse into Old Abingdon, you don't need much time to check out the house. My daughter says she thinks the music room is haunted, but not scary, just interesting.

Visited at Christmas during the decorating contest for the different rooms. The docent was helpful in answering questions and the home is beautiful. Well worth seeing!

“Charming quick tour”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The docent was terrific and shared some tidbits (like the bee palace) that were totally intriguing. Doesn't take long to tour, and it's right "downtown" so worth a visit
