“two for the price of one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

See my review of the Ball-Eddleman-McFarland house. This is the other home you can visit with the purchase of one ticket. The homes are completely different. Thistle Hill was not a private home for long, so much restoration has been going on. The enormous amount of money spent to build the house can still be felt.

“Wedding in a historic surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Went to a relatives wedding in the lovely old home that is so very well maintained and just wonderful to have a happy event to enjoy. I enjoyed talking to the house curator and getting a lovely discussion of the home's history and place in Ft Worth history. This gem should be kept and appreciated by all who have the chance to tour the past in this lovely home.

“Great visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

This was a very interesting place to visit. Your ticket gives you admission to the Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House as well, and you don't have to visit both on the same day. Because they both host events, they do not offer tours on Saturday. This is the larger house, but I enjoyed the tour of the Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House more. Thistle Hill has recently started having food trucks. I don't know when they are available, but it is not on Sunday.

“Historic for sure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

At one time one of the best haunted houses around. That was many years ago. Near the medical area and easy on easy off the freeway so that makes this a good place to see.

“Fort Worth History”

Have loved this house since I was a child. Taking the tour with a docent made a time in Fort Worth's history come alive!
