  • We love local history. We learned things we did not know and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the tour. Love the old house: it was beautifully crafted.

  • This is a must see if you are a history buff... you could spend days looking at everything if you wanted to.....they have a Lucy room dedicated to her life in Jamestown that acts like a nice complement to the Lucy museum in town .
  • Was really nice.
