The docent provided us with an interesting tour (about an hour) on a 2nd Saturday open house. The house is full of real history and artifacts, including items from the 1700's. The docent was friendly and energetic and knew a great deal about the house. We especially enjoyed when she pointed out on old maps how the city used to be. I also found of interest the stories about how Madam Brett was quite a business woman. It was kind of funny how the house has many items that were never part of the house's contents (such as the doll room) but people have donated because they are antiques and unique items. We learned that no-longer- needed keys were buried in the ground because they thought the iron was good for the soil. There was no air conditioning and steep stairs on a hot day. $5 fee.
