So neat to be in this historic home! built in the 1870's and containing some of the clothing, china, etc. that were Mrs. Raney's from Paris. We stayed in their guest house located behind this mansion. Great area.

This area has several interesting museums. The Raney house was very interesting. We enjoyed hearing about the family and the role they played in the area.

We were there on a Saturday. There weren't any set time for tours, and the docent, although knowledgeable and informative, kept getting sidelined with people coming in at different times. We finally had to leave without completing the tour as she felt she had to...More

Had a nice time re-living a bit of old Florida history. The docent gave us many insights that we would never had know without her.

We've been to Apalachicola a few times and never stopped here. The guide was wonderful and we learned how important the city was in the cotton trade. I highly recommend this visit while in Apalachicola
