  • It seems a little unimpressive as you drive up and a lot of the displays are simple, but the history of the house is rich and the ladies who work there are very knowledgeable. It was a very interesting tour and extremely educational. We spent about 2 hours there. I wish she had left out a political jab at our current president which seemed a little uncalled for. Overall I would recommend it.
  • Beautiful place!! My only disappointment is that we were not able to take the 3 hour tour (3/12/19). We were told it's only for groups on 10 and it has to be scheduled in advance. It's not clear on the website. The day we visited, there was enough people for 3 buses which would could have clearly generated a lot of money at $43 a person for the tour compared to $13 a person for the museum visit. Other than this, I was very pleased. I wish they would just have scheduled tours throughout the day. Just my opinion....
