  • I always love going to park in the morning or late afternoon for my walks. I enjoyed it as always. I was a little hesitant to walk all the way into in the park due to the height of grass. I'm aware that with grass at a certain height comes snakes. But I know the keepers of the park are very diligent with the upkeep and it is appreciated, so I know that they will take of it.
  • This is a cool place, especially for history buffs. You can learn slot about the history of the area and the prominent family that owned and built the house. I have been twice. Never seems to be crowed, there is plenty of parking and restrooms available. There is a small fee to tour the inside of the house, but is well worth it. The staff was very pleasant. They were very versed any the history and could answer most any question. If ever in Apalachicola, make sure you visit this place, you won't be disappointed.
