This is a must see for history buffs. I had not heard of Maggie Walker until today, and am wondering how I missed such an important person in African American history. The park ranger led tour of Mrs Walker's house was great and gave you a wonderful perspective on her life.

I really enjoyed visiting the Maggie L. Walker Historic Site. I was able to enter her home and look at many of her possessions up close. I will return again with additional family members in the future. The tour guides on-site were very knowledgeable.

I hadn't ever heard about Maggie Walker before this day and I'm really not a history fan but this place is very inspirational.The tour guide explained everything to us which gave us a lot of insight on not only the area but this woman’s story. We got to tour her actual home which I thought was amazing. If you get a chance please visit this location. You won’t be disappointed also its free to the public which was nice too.

The tour was great. Our tour guide explained everything to us and brought everything to perspective. The history of the family and the area itself has allot of history.

I am not a history buff, but I enjoyed visiting relics of the past. It is amazing to see the variations of the items they used in comparison to what we have today.
