The amazing woodcraft that it took along with design genius and infinite patience makes this House an absolute must for any tourist. This also involves American business history about the Gamble family of Proctor and Gamble fame.

The Metro line stops around 1 mile from the House, and there is a bus which goes from Metro to very near the House. The directions are posted on the Gamble House website.
