We had a fantastic time here. We showed up early and got a tour for $14 a person. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. The mansion had some beautiful furniture and magnificent walls. If you like architecture and art, this is definitely worth doing while in town.
Beautiful mansion! We took a tour and the guide was knowledgeable. The main difference between this location and other mansions I've toured is that this one is still being fixed up. I would recommend it for a quick dose of history though!
