Wonderful tour and awesome tour guide! Our guide, Jeannie M., really knows her subject. This was the first time that we heard about a traveler's room where anyone too tired or lost could stay free for the night with dinner and breakfast. Jeannie was an experienced guide telling us only what added to the history and interest of the mansion. She was animated and loved what she is doing. Thank you!
Just love old stuff and simpler times gone by, believe I'd do it on the porch. Then have the ol lady plow the back 40, bowlegged and naked.
