“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Although a rest area, this is a wonderful history spot. Learn about the area. The employees are very friendly and helpful.

“Awesome historical rest area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is probably the most awesome rest area that I have ever been to! I have been there several times and it is always clean! Also, at certain times of the day they have tours of this historical mansion...FOR FREE! Overall great place to visit!

“Better on the outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a very beautiful building. Go inside for brochure and pamphlets about the area. Ask for information if you need it and if you are lucky you may just be in time to take a tour of the building. Watch out for buses though. It can get crowded inside the building.

“Somewhat clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Bathrooms could use some attention! Staff was no where to be seen and that was kind of disappointing, due to needing directions to a location!

“A Reststop Well Worth Stopping At”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

We agree with those who have commented on Whitehaven below. An historic Puducah attraction worth spending time at, you can do it in less than an hour. Regina, the Dept. of Tourism person, was very pleasant and informative.
