I did the self guided tour with my 11-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter. All three of us loved it! The tour gave a fascinating look into their lives and I would do this again with anyone visiting us from out of town. 5 stars!
This is one of the most beautiful and well maintained old homes I have ever seen. The workmanship and beauty of the home is incredible. The old cars are cool, too! Great stopping point while you are in Galveston
