The home is amazingly beautiful with original furnishings (something rarely seen). The tour guide is very knowledgeable including minute details. The tour took 2 1/2 hours with quite a bit of repetition. The house isn’t air conditioned well so not best to do on hot...More

Take a walk back in time and dream you lived an affluent life in the old days. Hear the voices of the sisters that lived in the house! Walk on beautiful hard wood floors; climb the stairs like a prince or princess!

The tour was very nice. Christmas is my favorite time to visit as there are many, many Nutcrackers on display. A lady who once toured the mansion had this collection and she donated them all to the mansion.
