My husband and I have gone on a lot of old house tours and this one was definitely near the top of the list. We paid $5 per person (goes toward conservation and upkeep of the home) for the “self-guided” tour, which was a very fair price for what we received. We figured we would be on our own, but there was a docent onsite who ended up giving us a complete “behind the scenes” type experience. Randy was excellent! Awesome, laidback dude with a ton of knowledge about the house and the family who lived there. He took us in to see the old natatorium space, then took us through the house sharing bits of info here and there about the family, rooms, and original heirlooms. He even brought us up to the upper levels, which were closed for restoration work, to see the bedrooms and the attic space where we poked around some antique furnishings and frames (one girl in our group found an old telegraph the family received about a man being stabbed and killed). We loved every minute and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a cool dose of Texas history.
