It was a lovely visit thru this nice old home to peek in the past. The tour guide was very knowledgable with history and Mrs Keyes' life. Can't wait to read one of her books!

I had heard of both the General and the author but knew little about the latter's books before my visit here. The house itself is quaint and cozy and it is clearly a lovingly restored and tended home with a gentle atmosphere of Mrs. Keyes' personality. I especially liked seeing the desk where a working author wrote with such dedication. The docent was delightful and the 4 of us had the tour to ourselves. There is also a very appropriate little gift shop on the premises.

The Beauregard-Keyes house is worth the visit. The docents know the history of both Pierre Beauregard and Frances Parkinson Keyes.

The house and garden are beautiful, with a lot of history. Tours start on the hour, so don't arrive more than a few minutes before the hour. Each person on the tour allowed to select a hard-cover book by Francis Parkinson Keyes--free!

I got the Groupon for this house tour and I'm so glad we went. Our tour guide, Ott, was really friendly, fun and knowledgeable. He told us he has been volunteering at the house (and now is officially staff) for over a decade. You are also given a wide variety of books to take home (for free) written by Keyes. Learned a lot about the history of the city and the individuals who lived in the house. This house is also across the street from the Old Ursuline Convent which is the oldest building in the Mississippi Valley. You can hit two landmarks at once.
