Only open Fridays 1-3 not easy to find using public transport from Rochester. Some good displays and well briefed docent. Worth a visit, but make sure it is Friday! more »
I came to Stone-Tolan house with my class for a field study. The docents who gave us an educational tour were excellent with my young students, very knowledgeable about the history of the home and land, and completely flexible about what we would focus on as we learned about this historical site.
Really cool place. Chris Hogan is awesome!!! I love his story telling :D
