You will learn about life for a rather large family on the National Highway. The family operated an inn type setting for travelors. The basement level has several exhibits about the time period. An outer barn and smokehouse are available for view. The lower floor of the barn can be utilized as a meeting room.

It's great to learn about the family that lived here, and the settlers who traveled on the National Road in the mid 19th century. I would recommend this place for anyone interested in frontier history, and learning about a very different time.

We stopped for one of the two tours available on Fridays only. While I expected a tour of the grounds, the exterior of the farmhouse, maybe the barn, the one-hour tour was confined to three rooms in the 1840s house. Still, our guide Joe Frost made that tour interesting for our small group, including four children about 10 or younger.... More

This was a great place to visit! We were in Greenfield to see James Whitcomb Riley sites and made an appointment here. Our guide, I forget his name, was super nice and very informative. The home was one of many early places on the National Road where travelers could stop to sleep and eat, which would be more comfortable and... More

This is an awesome historic home. Our tour guide, Jim, was really into sharing the story of how the Huddleston's made their living and how they helped travelers trekking westward on the National Road in search of land. In the basement their are high tech, interactive exhibits focused on the history of the Historic National Road, from pioneer era to... More
