We loved this tour. We went without the kids, which is highly recommended, as it is a one-hour tour of history. A little too long for my kiddos. But it is so worth seeing. The guide gave us plenty of history on the Packer family, as well as all the contents of the home. The house and it's contents are the original from the Civil War era so it's a step back in time. And the walls are covered in carved wood or hand-painted wallpaper so everywhere you look, it's original to it's time. Great tour!
