Kelton House Museum & Garden reviews
Intriguing family which built and lived in this house for decades. The tour takes about an hour -- a great glimpse into history. The backyard is a beautiful place to sit or for weddings/receptions... more »
Gain a lot of information. Didn't see much that pertained to underground railroad but verbal information and a few pics. more »
Such a rich history. Had a very abnormal experience in the dining room. I felt a sudden burst of tears and started bawling my eyes out during the tour. Not sure what happened but I felt fine as soon as I left the room. Beautiful gardens and wonderful staff. If your nearby it's worth the stop.
Beautiful home full of history and intrigue, great stop during our visit to Columbus. The staff was polite and helpful, and gave us a quick layout of the house, we chose the self-guided tour with audio guide. I highly recomend the audio guide for two reasons, without it, it is highly possible to breeze through the house because it isnt that large. And second, it gives a large amount of information about each room, and the artifacts inside.
