Much of the house is as it was when David Davis lived there. Plus, they have a lot of documentation about the family and life at the time when the area was being settled. The house is in beautiful condition, and the tour guides are knowledgeable and interesting.

I like touring old houses and mansions. While the David Davis Mansion isn't Biltmore, it's a great historical treasure worth the visit.

The wife and I went here on a Sunday and we were the only one's there. That's a shame. The history and connection with President Lincoln will open your eyes. This Mansion was way ahead of it's time tith indoor plumming and water. Take your time and look at the architecture and relize what they did with hand tools.
There is no admission charge but you can make a contribution after the tour if you like. No pressure
