We visited for the first time and found a hidden gem of a historic house and garden. The docent was really informative and had great antidotes about the family and historic trivia which really made a huge difference in the visit. A must see.
This was a very interesting tour! The history of the house and the family that lived here was interesting. It was great to hear about how this house was restored! After the tour you can walk through the garden and trails on the property. Native...More
Having seen many local elite mansions and galleries this was a wonderful insight into the early years of local settlement, with a true glimpse of life for those a little lower down the social scale!
Our guide, Jo, was knowledgable and welcoming. The collection itself...More

Not sure about that one. The person who lives in the house and gives tours is pretty nice, so if you explain that you have seen it before she might be amenable to letting you view the outside without paying, assuming that you don't have a large group. I love to take pics, and often return to a place I visited on a rainy day. Usually, the historic homes don't charge me another admission when I explain. Hope this helps.
