Beautiful house inside. Outside being restored, don't let that change your mind about touring.. Our guide was the owner. He was so interesting. Knew every detail of the house , furnishings, and history. Can tell he loves his home. GPS took us to the front of the house, but parking is on next street. Keep up the good work.

My friend and I toured the Mansion and had a wonderful tour. The gentleman that provided the tour was very knowledgeable of the history of the Mansion. My husband and I plan to return and stay at the B & B. What a great way to SEE history up close and personal.

This is a beautiful mansion that thankfully was saved from the wrecking ball. Debbie was a great docent providing interesting insights into the history of the family and the building itself. Well worth a visit.

This was a fantastic visit to a fantastic home. Our tour guide was Becky and she was also fantastic! She spend over two hours showing us this beautiful home and had so much knowledge of its history. Definitely should make this a place to visit if you're in Hannibal.

There are many things to do in Hannibal but this was our favorite (maybe because I'm old and like old houses!). The history of this mansion is wonderful. The current owner is the one who leads the tours. All the furnishings were original. The wood in the house is beautiful. Highly recommend the tour.
