We truly enjoyed our visit to this historic site. The guides were able to bring the house and grounds to life with their narratives plus answer in detail our questions. A group of early school age summer camp children were kept engaged by the guide/storytellers painting pictures and demonstrations of an American literary figure's sense of place and time past in central Florida.
