My brother came to town and the first place I wanted him to see was the Bingham-Waggoner Estate. He commented he'd never seen a Victorian home where 95% of the contents were original. Furnishings, paintings, silver and other décor. He also liked hearing how the Estate home grew in size to be the museum that it is; also other historic... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We're extra pleased when our own Independence residents enjoy and share the local historic sites. There's so much to see! We met a couple last week who came to town in an RV, planning to spend a day. They were already on day four and weren't leaving anytime soon! Thanks... More

The house itself is nice, but the wall decorations and the light fixtures and the other furnishings are mostly original and are amazing.

Spent 2.5 hrs here today and we just loved every minute! It didn't feel like a historic house, but instead like a "family home." Our tour guide, Wanda, was very knowledgeable of the home, family and grounds. We can't wait to go back and visit during their quilt tour, crafts show, Christmas tours and more! Definitely not for little kids,... More

This house is beautiful all on it's own but during the Christmastime, when it's decorated, it's breathtaking! Highly recommend this tour anytime of the year.

Staff let us go in and check the house out for a reception. Lady that ran the house was super nice and had a ton of knowledge. Would like to return and just hang out in house. Cool property.

My first trip to the Bingham Waggoner Estate was at the Independence Uncorked Wine Festival in September sponsored by the Independence Rotary Club. The grounds were beautiful. The staff at the estate and the volunteers at the event were friendly and helpful. There were quality vendors and much to explore.
