  • We just showed up to look around and were greeted by Gloria. She proceeded to give us an amazing impromptu tour filled with fun history tidbits! Do you know what a “Sad iron” is? Gloria does and she’ll be happy to fill you in. We plan to bring all visitors to this mansion. So fun!
  • Beautiful place. Very historic. Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Had a tour and shopped for $5 admission. A portion of the sales funded the society. Great mulled cider and snacks like cookies or stickies from local sponsors. Cannot wait to go back next season. Will definitely add to holiday calendar of must do's.
