We added this stop at the last minute, but we were glad we did. It was very interesting and had great old maps of the area, showing how different the maps were over the years. House was awesome. Tour was very informative.

B ecause our goal was to l;earn history we placed this on our to do list. YES the building is authentic, with the stages of improvements over the centuries visible without distracting from the house. The tour guide was informative and kept history alive

Fascinating tour of the oldest house and the changes made throughout its history. Tour guides are knowledgeable and bring the historical owners alive through anecdotes. Kids, ages 7-14, enjoyed this too. Affordable!! $18 for our family of 5.
