  • The Woodlawn museum itself is beautiful, a wonderful learning experience for the whole family. Come prepared to spend a few dollars in their nostalgic gift shop. The hill out back is excellent for sledding!
  • Unusual...all original furniture, access upstairs, owned by one family. Nice self-guided recorded tour. Nice grounds. Docent was interesting and accommodating. Felt welcome.
  • Really pretty and great walking trails behind.

  • Beautiful hiking trails and estate with museum
