  • Absolutely INCREDIBLE!! We visited a few weeks back and were absolutely blown away. Tricia and Rick were wonderful and we loved learning all about the history of the grounds and the people who lived there! We even got a cutting from Alwin’s plant, what a beautiful way to continue his legacy. We can’t wait to come back and take the full tour! Thank you so much for preserving this beautiful piece of history!
  • Great tour - very informative.
