    Loved learning about a preserved piece of history from the area. Tour guide Tommy excellent, enthusiastic, knowledgeable. Made the tour interesting and fun. Met John in the gift shop who had met Mrs. Stranahan on several occasions-- made history come alive even more. Well worth the time to visit and step back in time.

    Wasted my time finding this place only to find it closed for a private event. No sign out front saying it was closed. Had to wander into some office and was rudely told that I missed the last tour by 10 minutes.

    Incredible venue for a waterfront wedding. Great tent, great views. The men's bathroom needs some work, but it's serviceable.
