  • I love it there now i can understand why my family the barrows loved john audubon and were such best friends and loved his paintings.
  • Very nice, historic house with some short nature trails. Beauitful setting. Clean restrooms, staff and a small museum. Quaint. Worth the visit. A good picnic site and settings for photography. Good to bring mosquito repellant for horse flies in the summer months.
