As a former historic home guide, it was nice to go to a circa 1870 home and get a fairly informal tour. We got to see all three floors of the home which was nice. They were not particularly strict about people touching the objects-on one hand refreshing, but on the other hand horrifying to me. The home is beautiful and I am glad that the ATVA has preserved it and kept it open for touring. It was nice to do this considering that everything else that I have done in my other visits to Memphis has been related either to music or sports. The cost is ten dollars which is reasonable for a tour that lasted a little over an hour. However, while the women who worked their were all very nice it seemed a little disorganized at points. We started with one tour guide in the gift shop who then abruptly turned us over to a hardy octogenarian. While our new guide possessed at points an abundance of knowledge the organization of the presentation could have been improved upon. Still, all things considered it was a nice change of pace. Should take no more than 1-2 hours and there are other historic homes in this old Millionaire's Row of Memphis-some of these our open for touring and others have been conserved, but are going through adaptive reuse. You are fine walking within a three block distance, but after that the neighborhood gets sketchy.
