  • The tour guide named Delores did a terrific job of showing me from the gift shop, to the video, and a walk through of the main home. She is a long time volunteer who was willing to spend time telling me stories about the estate, and listen to, and answer, all of my questions about the families and the property. A gentleman who has done a fabulous lego replica model of the estate let me back into the house to take pictures. One is a picture of a calling card table. He said the home has been used for filming a movie in the past. Special events are scheduled there and apparently some rentals for personal events. The original home still has the furniture that was refurbished to match the originals and as was the paint etc. Definitely, the tour, interior and exterior, and the lesson on history is worth much more than the $5 tour fee. I recommend this to any art, and or, history enthusiast!
  • Very nice historic place. Thoroughly enjoyed our 12 year old tour guide! He knew his stuff, and was very good. Interesting film about the mansion also. So glad we toured this place!
