  • Small home and museum with small grounds. This is the only home preserved where Polk lived other than the White House itself. Pleasant tour. Nice local staff. Nothing at all like The Hermitage home of Andrew Jackson in Nashville. James Polk was the 11th president and deserves more than this modest effort considering he added Oregon, Washington, part of Idaho, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Nevada to the United States. Underrated and rarely discussed very important President. This house and museum definitely worth visiting.
  • Haven't been here since I was a kid in grade school..My gf has never been..today was the day..It was better now that I am older and appreciate history more. Jim did an awesome job with the tour..very informative and took him time with us. Awesome job sir..parking was a snap and the price to tour was very acceptable..dont hesitate, go. Where else can you drive 5 minutes from your house and be in the same room that two former presidents once sat and ate a meal...
