Our hobby over the years has been visiting homes of the presidents. We have been to many of the most famous and some of the less famous... 20 so far and counting. We were very impressed with the house, the furnishings & possessions, the docents, and the history we received. I really can't understand the criticism of a recent visitor. Many, many items in the house belonged to the Fillmores with the main part of the house and a kitchen table handmade by the president himself! Several items on display were brought back from the White House. The quilt on the bed in the tumbling blocks pattern was hand sewn by Abigail Fillmore herself! Daughter Mary's one of a kind harp is on display and is truly a work of art. The Fillmore's personal "one horse open sleigh" is in the carriage house outback. This house is staffed by well-informed volunteers from the local historical society, and let me tell you, they know their stuff! We left the home with much more knowledge of President Fillmore and his family. If you are looking for a fancy mansion, gilded & ornate, don't bother to go. But if you want to really see a unique piece of history and learn more about our 13th president, you will be well-rewarded. They are not operated by the National Park Service, so they don't have your tax dollars supporting them. I don't think that $10 per person is too much to ask! We are very glad that we added the Millard Fillmore home to our travels!
