  • The tour in the mansion was eye-opening. The architecture and decor was enjoyable to observe. Disappointed that we could not see more of the rooms, in depth.

  • This is the only home within the park. Has a ranger within to explain. Has a trail to walk throughout the park. A historic family owned place until donated to the county to become a tourist action. A very good place to think and enjoy the beauty of the past. A well preserved home. You could really tell how many could go far.
  • We visited the historical mansion associated with the park. It was absolutely worth it! Kelly was our guide, and she was honestly the best tour guide I've had. She had so many stories about the home that were fascinating and you could tell how passionate she was about the conservation of home and surrounding areas. She really had us thinking by the end of the tour! She also gave us a heads up about the fern garden located in the back of the property. Well worth the small hike. It was beautiful and felt like you were in Jurassic Park.
