The inside tour was better than the outside tour but all was interesting to learn about the history of this place. Our group had Deb for the inside tour and she was very informative.

Docent was well-versed on local history so she did an admirable job explaining the time pieces. One cannot just amble through the house at will. Beautifully restored home gives a flavor of the day. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

A beautiful old home with a unique history. Plenty of Fine Furniture original to the home. Astonishing dioramas created by Chicago Art School student Doris Caldwell. Tour guide Ben Anderson does a great job.
