Wright's Ferry Mansion reviews
Painstakingly restored and the history of the Wright Family was incredible. A must see for all ages. more »
This house is incredible! So many of the original building still intact from the mid 1700's. Everything is clean and polished. Liz, our tour guide was beyond excellent. And only 5.00 admission. more »
Liz was our tour guide today and the title doesn't befit her as she is so much more. Liz showed how passionate she is of the history of Susanna Wright and the museum and it's exquisite artifacts. Thank you for having such a delightful, intelligent individual who made our morning a most memorable one to remember. Sincerely, Jeanette Dalton Frances B. Koharcheck
What an absolutely amazing experience! Our tour guide was so kind and patient and super knowledgeable. It was so much fun to learn about Suzey Wright and her history. Only $5, I felt like I walked away richer!!! 100% encourage everyone to go, local or not.
