The Goodman is one of Tyler's best kept secrets. It is also one of the must see places in Tyler. Most of the furniture belonged to residents of the home and a visit to the Goodman is like stepping back in time to the 1880s....More

Not sure too, but there is an entrance mon the side. If ever it's wheelchair accessible, it will only be the first floor. The second floor is a narrow staircase. Call them too, they're very helpful.
