  • Tour guide Rachel loves talking about this place and especially about Louisa, either because of familiarity or another reason. Also liked watching the squirrels in the treetops.
  • Enjoyed learning history of the home and people who lived and worked here at time it was established. Really enjoyed the beautiful grounds.
