  • This mansion was built in the 1800's and has been continually lived in by the Davis family until the 1960s. It is an excellent example of a nicely done, stately home without the over the top things yo...  more »
  • The current property owners have done a great job of depicting the life of affluence in the 19th century. And the ties to local history and Abraham Lincoln are fascinating for anyone with a natural cu...  more »
  • Can't really do 5 stars only because it is basically a house of a man only partly know by people in Bloomington. The workers are very nice and willing to answer all your questions, but they don't alwa...  more »

  • It's nice little walk into the history and old tales. The tours guides are very friendly and gives an entertaining peek through the Victorian era of the town and history. The gift shop is also nice and cute.
  • My husband and I really enjoy architecture and history, so this was the perfect place to explore! Start at the visitor's center! There, they show you a short film about David Davis, when he built the house and about the architecture of the time. After that, we had a nice tour. There were only four of us, so we felt very comfortable asking questions along the way! The house is beautiful and even more so because the Christmas decorations were up! The tour guide had a great amount of information about each room and how it was used and why it was designed the way it was. We probably only spent a little over an hour here, but in that time we learned and saw so much!
  • Very interesting mansion. Lots of history
  • Great tour, the staff were very knowledgeable and the tour was free! Can't beat that
  • Great docent-led tour.
