We were here for a wedding, despite the foggy, overcast days, it was beautiful. Wedding took place near the mansion at the overview of the city below. Lots of historic buildings to see.

Outstanding view of Huntsville and very scenic. Lots of neat history and old school building structure. New facility is very nice and is an excellent location for special events.

Of you're in to history, this is a cool place, and not so much for the mansion. The mansion was interesting, but it was the other side of the property that held my attention where you can see how people lived before the industrial revolution.

This was so much fun. I brought my 6 year old grandson here & he loved the activities they had for him. The mansion was awesome & he was able to hunt for gold, (fool's gold).

Nicely build house and great location. I think its all about location. I saw a setting for wedding. It gives good bird eye view of the city. Very well kept place. Good place to take pictures and enjoy family time.

My daughter loved this place. Chaperoned a field trip here and the kids loved it. Lots to see and do for kids at or over 7. My daughter loved trying to make butter and yarn, and seeing exactly how people lived then.
