  • A beautiful tree intense home setting to visit. Well kept grounds. Vegetable garden with period plants. Includes a newer gallery building with changing art exhibits.
  • Beautiful Museum, and nicely organized. Well preserved historical details.
  • Excellent site. Great multimedia setup brings the history alive.
  • Lovely display space for the paintings, scenic front porch to enjoy the view.
  • Not many details, had a visiting contemporary artist that took over the environment of the house, very few original furnishings/reproductions of the house. A lot of, "I don't know" answers from the tour guide.
