Interesting to see how the house was set up, fancy for the time period. Should have more flowers outside.

This is a self guided tour of the house and grounds. There is quite a bit of history of early Quincy here. Not really a lot to see.

cheap admission; self guided; very short stop as it s a very small structure; we went as we saw it in “Mysteries at the Museum”. View of the Mississippi.

My husband and I came here Thursday, June 21, as our first stop in discovering Quincy. We didn't tour it, just wanted brochures and maps of the town. We did walk around the grounds, though.

Interesting, but a quick once over is all you need to see this. I was disappointed that the builder chose this beautiful spot overlooking the river, and there was no place to enjoy it inside the house. Windows on that side were small and high.

Nice historic building but it doesn't take long to tour it however the $3.00 admission fee is well worth it

Beautiful place with a very interesting history. Not too pricey for admission. There is also a Quincy visitor center there, so a great place to start your trip. The story behind this mansion is very intriguing. My history buff teenager and I really enjoyed the...More

Interesting design. The villa is the tourist information location. Great views on the bluff to see the Mississippi.
