The owner and his wife, against local indifference, have done an utterly brilliant and inspiring job of bringing past Valparaiso to life. They deserve every credit going.

This was fascinating, we were welcomed by a dress suited gentleman Kenneth. and his wife Victoria all in period costume. The story of Valparaiso was outlined, then we were taken downstairs and learned about Victoria. The visit ended with a cup of tea and cake.
