The well restored house and grounds are a great piece of the area's history. The guided tour is well worth the time to really understand the history of the house and the area.

You ring the old-time bell to enter. The tour guide is extremely knowledgeable and personable. The restoration is on-going and well done. The furniture beautiful. The focus of this tour is life, the people, the home, the furniture.

The home and the tour were really nice. Our guide was very informative and gave great insight of the home when the original family lived there.

The house is currently undergoing restoration downstairs with the faux painting of the times. A very interesting house to see. Different than the other two nearby.
