Owner description: The beautiful home of John F. Cuneo is surrounded by 75 acres of lakes, fountains and botanical gardens.

The Cuneo Museum is an incredibly beautiful mansion. That do Napoleon and Charles Lindberg have to do with Cuneo? The history of the home is fascinating so listen to the information as it is shared and you will find out. The grounds are serene and it is such a pleasure to walk to the gazebo or sit and relax around the pool. It really is a trip back in time that will help you appreciate the lives of the privileged.
Take your time and really take in the beauty.

We attended a wedding at the mansion and were so thrilled with the setting and beautiful courtyard where the ceremony was held. Then the area was transformed into a cocktail area before dinner in the ballroom, which was like a fairy tale, The whole night was magical! We loved it!!

Visited on first Wed of month (free) and returned the following week for an evening concert on the lawn. The mansion is amazing but shows it's age well. The grounds are beautiful but the building needs some repair. It's good that this property has been saved and is being restored and made available to the public. Worth a stop if you are in the area. I wouldn't make a special trip.

We attended an antique car show at the Cuneo Museum, but the museum was closed that day. The grounds were beautiful. We saw many cars that we have never seen before in our lives.

It was more of a high end car show for the rich and not so famous.

Can't wait to go back.
