  • $2 per person and you get choice of guided or self guided with a sheet of paper describing each room. Two women in period costume are there to guide you if you like. Interesting little house that highlights what was considered normal back then. The poor woman of the house had 13 children and died in childbirth at the age of 46!!! It's great they could preserve some of the old tools, books, clothing, etc and you get a sense of life back then. Short walk over after visiting the giant fiddle.
  • Would not honour rate posted on website of $5 for a family. If rates changed, should change website or honour the rate when people quote it! Not impressed.
  • Best historic story. Don't miss this place
  • Docents gave a great tour in costume and in character.
  • Love it.
