It amazes me that this place isn't more widely known. It is amazingly preserved and has a tremendous story to tell. I have been to a lot of historic homes and this one stands out for its truly exceptional architecture, rich story, and surprisingly strong connection of its decor to its original owners. I got a personal tour from an enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable guide. Definitely one of the best visits to a historic house museum I have had. If you like history and are passing through west Alabama, you should stop here.
