  • The very best house tour I have ever been on. Great tour of a fantastic house museum, I have been in a hundred house museums by now, in most of the United States and quite a few in the UK, and I...  more »
  • This is one beautiful home. Our tour guide provided so many details of the lives of those who called this place home. And what a home it was! Well worth the visit for the history, the life-stories of....  more »
  • We had an excellent tour of the home. Our young female guide told us about the home and the 3 families that lived there. There are many photos but few family articles. However they supplement the family articles with items from the correct time periods. Two examples were a player piano and an early version of a record player. Both were operated and it was very nice experience. It is an old home on two floors and steep stairs need to be climbed. The city of Salem and the volunteer groups are to be commended for preserving this piece of Salem history. We timed our visit so we could follow the home tour with a once a month guided tour of the gardens by Lord & Schryver volunteers. This greatly added to our enjoyment of the gardens since they described everything and answered all our questions. The gardens are extensive and much was in bloom. To our surprise, we were the only visitors on our tours.
  • I loved being able to tour this old house without an appt! We literally decided last minute to go in and they were more than willing to let us take a walk around and learn about the history of the house! Was a great place for a wedding but would not have fit our party! This wonderful garden is fun to walk thru and then visit this beautiful old home. It’s not handicapped accessible; but, if you can get up the stairs it’s well worth it.
