Beginning with the drive up the winding road you feel you are traveling back in time. Then the sight of this grand home takes your breath. You must see it. The grounds are beautiful, which not only includes the massive six story home, (only the basement floor finished inside) but also a kitchen building separate from the house, servants' quarters, family cemetery and a carriage house. You are taken to the second floor also and given views of the upper stories through a massive open dome and told of the undeveloped plans of the owners, the Nutts. To listen to the guide tell of all that the owner had in store for the home is quite remarkably unbelievable for that time and you can picture it in your mind. It definitely takes you back in time. My husband and I loved it and we just wanted to linger in the pre-civil war era and imagine what it was like. We just visited in October, 2008 and the price is now $10 a person, not the $8 reported by another. However, it is worth it. It also has a gift shop and helpful guides who will answer any questions you have about the era, the Nutts and their children and servants, and the property.
