We tried to visit during the posted hours of operation (Thursday, 3pm) but it was not open. There was a mailbox with brochures of history of the house and land. If you want tourists to visit, you should be open during posted hours.

Surely a labor of love for the local restoration group! What a nice job restoring this brick home from the 1730 era. Knowledgeable tour guide, and cute gift shop!

a restored Quaker house showing life in the 1700's. Open mostly on the weekends. Interesting kitchen garden and beautiful flower garden.

The trek to the lakefront dock in the rear of the property was well worth it! The house itself was not open at the time so we just walked around and peeked into the building. It was well maintained from the exterior
