If your a Civil War buff, this is your place to visit.... Dr. Hall has connections with the Salisbury POW Camp during the American Civil War. Very well maintained, excellent tours available with staff who know the history.... MUST SEE.

Went to visit on Sat 6th january at 3pm. Sign on door says open Sat & Sunday 1pm -4pm, but door was locked, and no sign of anyone going about. No explanation as to why it was closed. Very disappointing,

Our first time visiting this very beautiful antebellum home. The tour volunteer's were knowledgeable and wore time period clothing; which I though was very impressive when they welcomed us as we entered the home. This is a must go to place.

A must visit at least once or twice each year. Always something missed. A real taste of the era prior to and including the Civil War.

This house has the unique characteristic of being passed down from female to female for over 100 years. Most of the furnishings and decor are the original belongings of the Hall family. The docents are all well-informed and friendly. Stop by and check it out....More

This is a great museum and period house to see in Salisbury. You get a great sense of Dr. Hall's life and the house he built as a physician in Salisbury during the Civil War.

The Docents added a lot of information to the tour. What a place this must have been back in the 1800's.
