As a regular visitor to the United States, we enjoy all and anything to do with the Presidents. So as this was once John Tyler's home, it was a must.
Well we tried ringing to try and make an appointment to view the house, but discovered from locals later that they rarely answer the phone (?) So we just turned up, paid the fee (an honesty box on the gate) and did a self guided tour of the grounds. Interesting, depending upon your desire to 'tick all the Presidential boxes'
