  • This is such an amazing place! The people are great, very informative and friendly especially the gentleman that took us on the tour. The tour is definitely worth the $5 and roughly the hour and a half it took. Beautiful very historic place. I would definitely recommend it if you're in the area and have the time.
  • We went out for family day which was a free event they were holding today. It was nice but not suitable for little kids. More for children 5 and up. The staff were really friendly. Most of the houses weren't open for people to look in. All in all not bad but I personally am not looking to go back right away.
