Our docent Joan was very knowledgeable, and pleasant. The history of the mansion is fascinating and the restoration of the rooms just beautiful and decorated with artifacts depicting the history of the mansion. We were encouraged to ask questions and to take our time viewing each room. The tour ended in the dining room, where, Pat, the cook had samples of different foods favored in the south. We were also encouraged to enjoy the grounds and revisit any of the rooms we just visited. Definitely would come back with my other family members.
