Interesting to tour this old, historic house. Original furniture gives a glimpse into how all the homes used to look around here.

This General's home is worth a 1/2 day trip. It's authentic American history with amazing original artifacts from that period. The docents were outstanding---one of the best I've experienced. Great place to bring kids Grade 5 and up.

This will not be everyone's cup of tea, but as a bit of different history of a civil war general (and Indian fighter's ) house with period furniture, etc. it's worth an hour. Definitely not for kids!

Great recorded tour, beautiful garden. We arrived with only 40 minutes to see the house and really could have spent more time. Two-for-one coupon was available via Entertainment online; cost very reasonable either way.
