Went with a group of about 30 people and got a guided tour of the house. The guide was knowledgeable and filled in all of the background of the large collection of photos and memorabilia. The house overlooks the river. Great setting and information.

Soooo, we got there too early (it's always good to look up the time things open). This is her grandparents home (where Amelia was born). It overlooks the river and the view is spectacular. Even tho we couldn't go inside?... it was worth the look-see.

Such a great tour, you really must see if you're visiting Atchison. Little girls get a huge kick out of the letters on Amelia's bed.

My family (3 teenage girls) actually turn off their phones and get interested in this attraction. The attitude of the home's namesake and the knowledge of the ladies guiding make it great.

Husband and I went here on our day trip to Atchison. It was interesting to know more about Amelia, her husband and family. It is a self guided tour and cost us $6 each. I would go here again.
