  • I lived in Binghamton for 10 years (im 10) and it shows how Binghamton was before I was here! ❣️
  • Lovely young lady giving tour, friendly , knowledgeable. The craftsmanship and attention to detail just amazing. The tour guide offered fascinating bits of information that opened the minds eye to aspects of life I was unaware of.
  • Beautiful old historic house. And I just happened to be there that day for a chamber music concert.
  • Great Local treasure
  • Lovely way to spend a cold Sunday. Joe was a fantastic guide and a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend it for people of all ages. Must have been a joy to live in Binghamton before it deteriorated.
