A very interesting visit, we had a fantastic tour guide who shared all sorts of tidbits of information such as the title sentence. It wasn't crowded, we weren't rushed, and we enjoyed the landscaping and gardens afterwards.

You go to old mansions, but then you visit this place. The history behind it is amazing. The tour guide was Tracey, and she was very wonderful. It is a must see.
