  • I went here today on a field trip. (To go you had to read 5 William Allen White award books and pass the quizzes over then with at least an 8/10) I liked it! But I can definitely tell you that some people were bored. It was cool to see a house where presidents have been abd where this famous author and editor actually LIVED!! I think I found it more interesting than some because I love books too. It wasn't the most fun thing in the entire world, but it was still pretty cool. I would recommend this!
  • The house was very nice and interesting.
