A very intersting historical house with a great story. Our docent Dick was very nice and gave us a great tour. Call ahead before going to make sure there are tours available and make an appointment - the tour size is limited.

Visiting the Walt Whitman House is so real it's almost surreal, because I've never been to a house museum where it felt so much like the person had just stepped out for a quick errand and might be back momentarily. Whitman's furniture, papers and artifacts...More
