  • Sad. My father went here 40 years ago,I was there 20 years ago. After seeing it today to show it to my children was heart breaking, it has gotten worse over time. Grand old mansion that was robbed of it treasures when it was given to the teacher's union and even what was left is now stored away. It is deteriorated and much is now closed off. The limestone is cracked and I don't know if it can ever be restored at this point. The best collection was the antique weapons and armor which is now not even on display. Will not return.
  • Neat place to stop. Look for the events
  • Totally surprising experience. I had no idea it would be as cool as it was. And the library is amazing!
  • Very old house. Huge loss of fun. Has elevator
  • Beautiful place to take pictures.
