  • Highly recommend for insights of early living and family life into one of the pioneers in the area. Extremely interesting background on development of this family’s wealth and prominence.

  • Beautiful place!! Thirty-eight room mansion left by the Oliver family. Everything in it is original to the house. So many unique pieces, and Brenda, our guide, told lots of great stories. There's only one room you can't go into-the nursery-because there are no original pieces for that room. I loved the library, kitchen, mourning room and kitchen the best. Oh yeah, and gorgeous Tiffany glass everywhere! You should go!!
  • We really enjoyed our tour. Only issue was the heat inside the mansion, which is understandable with the size of it.
