Great tour of the mansion. The history that was explained was very interesting. The house was boarded up for years so it's like going back in time. It's a great tour if love antiques and history.

When visiting the area I highly recommend this tour. It was so well done and very interesting. Some tours can be boring but this is not one of them. Very informative and the guide kept our attention. Beautiful mansion full of history. You will not be disappointed in this tour.

Enjoyed the tour and our entertaining tour guide. Since the family was prominent in the town is also brought together some of the other history of the town we heard at the church and read about. Definitely worth a stop for $10.

This is an impressive historical site. All items in the house are original dating from around the 1880's. The house itself is beautiful. Our tour guide was very informative. He answered all of the questions posed by the group of 10 on a recent weekday morning tour. Our tour took about an hour. Well worth the $10 fee which goes towards house maintenance.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable with many anecdotes about the family peppered in with his explanations of the decor. The house is a beautiful step back in time and the craftsmanship in the carvings were gorgeous!
