The tour is basically self-guided. There was a very friendly docent available. But, she is also "manning the front desk" so she is pulled in various directions. You start with a video that tells you about the house. Then you can walk around at your...More
We probably would not have ventured to Proctor solely for this venue, but if you're an architecture buff, Wilson Castle is an interesting attraction.
