  • Always wanted to visit this place... One Fall day out of the blue... I went by this location to get info. on a future tour for my family & I... or for out of town guests I’d like to take there... The staff told me a tour was getting ready to start...They asked if I’d like to join the tour... I’m so happy I went on the tour... Great tour of the property, great tour guide, great staff, & I also enjoyed the art exhibit after the tour was over! I will definitely return, & I’ve been spreading the word on this being a great place to visit!
  • I really enjoyed the tour, and also the history of 1774 which wasn't even three hundred years ago. It's just super cool to learn about history. The staff was very good and nice. I really enjoyed seeing and getting to go into the oldest house in Charlotte.
