  • Very cool house, and amazing location in the heart of Los Olas. Held my sister's wedding here and couldn't have been happier.
  • A very interesting tour with very knowledgeable staff. Would recommend to all.
  • Cute and informative. It's really small so I'm not sure if you get the most bang for your buck but the staff are simply charming.
  • Definitely worth a visit. Look forward to spending an hour here, maybe after lunch. The guided tour tells a captivating story that will satisfy your craving for local history. Call ahead to make sure they aren't closed for a private event. Wear comfy shoes, and be prepared to go up and down the staircases. Buy something from the gift shop and help support this non-profit organization.
  • It's a historical place with cool history no doubt, but it's definitely over-hyped. Don't plan on spending a whole lot of time here. Call the place to make sure they haven't closed it for a private event.
