This was a very informative tour. Would recommend to anybody that want to get caught up on local culture. Should be a must to anybody studying architecture. Is still had to believe this was designed 80 years ago. Still amazed at what I saw.

Loved the tour. The home is wonderful and a must see. My disappointment was this was advertised as a Christmas tour. One Christmas tree, two trains and a centerpiece were the only holiday decorations. I was very disappointed at that.

Ahead of his time and a genius on many levels, this architectural masterpiece of Alden Dow is a must see. He found his success Midland and the trust graciously sponsors many attractions in town. This tour is one of a kind, enjoy!
