  • As a local resident, I have been to the Seelye Mansion many times. (In fact, I previously lived across the street from it.) If you have time during your stay in Abilene, make sure to take the tour of ...  more »
  • We went to the mansion arriving at 9:30 9/29 and there were 2 buses already there. They were suppose to start tours at 10:00 but had apparently started early due to these scheduled tours. We waited ti...  more »

  • Owner gave an outstanding tour and provided detailed information on the history and the details of the home. If you enjoy both history and neat older houses, you cannot pass this one up.
  • Lovely house! Beautiful antiques! Best tour guide I ever met!
  • Terry, tbe man who lives there and does the tour is Awesome. Walking in the front door, is stepping back in timr to 1906!! Kids wouldn't like it as the tour lasted 2.5 hrs. This is definitely an adult venue.
  • Really interesting. I have been wanting to see inside for years! The old man was nice but annoying and can't keep a conversation going unless it is him talking. When you try to ask questions or talk about anything else then his mind is off on something else and he will talk to someone else walking by. The history here is very cool. The power went out while we were there and didn't come back on until we were almost done with the tour. I will say that you should do this reasonably priced tour at least once but you'll have to put up with his singing and rambling on and on in his different ways.
  • The mansion it's self is amazing! A lot of great history! A 3 hour tour with no running A/C on the first two floors was uncalled for! Since the modern digital wall climate controller reading was 81° on those floors! I would have loved to learn more about the mansion and it's furnishings but our guide was more interested in telling us about the sisters that sold the mansion to him.... Which was great at first but after the first hour my patience started to fray! Too Hot and Too Long!
