  • After a visit to the family's Victorian Chambers with the supplied audio city, you'll be taken down in the basement. Here will be the family active participation in the liberation of the slaves told. Certainly worth a visit.

  • We went with a large group as part of a haunted Columbus tour. The rooms were beautifully decorated and a guide took us around and explained the family history in Columbus.  more »

  • The building is absolutely lovely, and their staff are incredibly friendly. I stopped over during the Holiday Trolley Hop with Discover Columbus, and I had an incredible time there. It's really like taking a step back in time. They have self-guided tours on certain days of the week, too.
  • We really enjoyed our visit. The costumed guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the local history. Unlike many similar places, we were allowed to walk in the rooms and see the historical items up close. We visited on a Sunday afternoon...probably the best time to go.
