We stayed next door in the Harry Packer Mansion and after hearing all of the history we had to visit this as well. Everything in the house is original to when the last Packer, Mary, died in 1912. It was amazing to think that much of it had been there, unchanged, from when it was built in the 1800"s. The chandelier in the parlor was the original that was copied for Tara in Gone with the Wind. The guide was very informative and was able to answer all of our questions. This a a house tour where you don't have to imagine what it was like to live here, you can see it. It was like taking a step back into the history of our country. No gift shop, no bathrooms, just the house.
