The homes we saw were well preserved and beautiful. I applaude the society for taking on this feat. The tours were well thought out and we could take them at our own pace. The workers were friendly and knowledgeable. Well done.

If it were not for the preservation society, we would not have many of these homes to see. Several of the later generations either did not want the mansions, or they were too costly to maintain. Some families gifted the PS with the house, furnishings...More

Absolutely, a multi-mansion pass exists. It is a significant savings. Check the website of the Preservation Society to see the ticket prices.
