  • We loved our tour of the home. It's beautiful and definitely a "must-see" in Evansville. Our tour guide was very likeable, as well. The video they have you watch at the beginning is pretty dreadful, t...  more »

  • Beyond horrible customer service. Had a field trip planned since January with Duane Myers. Received an email from him in Mid January to say the date wasn't available (after he had already confirmed it was). We rescheduled via email on February 5 to a new date of April 14 . I mailed (and communicated that the check was mailed) on April 5th. Fast forward to April 11th. I receive a phone call from Duane stating he hadn't received our check. He stated that he could give it one more day, and if it wasn't received by tomorrow (April 12), he needed me to bring one to them by the end of the day, to which I agreed. At 3:00pm today, April 12, ONE day before our field trip, I receive a phone call from Duane stating that because the check wasn't received until today, the trip has been cancelled. I requested a call from his manager. Matthew, who stated he is the Executive Director (and that he has no one to report to, nor can i file a complaint with anyone) called me to say that it would be cancelled. He was unwilling to even try to accommodate us. Never, EVER will I recommend this place to anyone.
  • This was such a beautiful home to tour. Our guide was great and we learned a lot! Would definitely go back.
  • Your first step inside this amazing and beautifully preserved home will be "Wow", very interesting history,the staff was really friendly and very knowledgeable of the house history, its too bad this is the only home available to tour because there are so many beautiful homes here in the historic area. ⚘
  • Great historical background and well presented.
  • What a wonderful preserved piece of history with such a friendly staff. It is truly a inspiring.
