  • The guide for this house was very nice and very knowledgeable. It was interesting to learn some of the history of Harrisburg and the house was very nice. There is parking behind the house through a couple narrow alleys.
  • We showed up on a day they weren't giving tours not realizing but we're vacationing in the area so didn't check. We stopped by the office to see if they could recommend any similar attraction. The woman said she was not an official tour guide but wanted us to see the house. She took us through and showed us everything and explained what she knew of the history. Our young children were with us so not getting a really long boring history lesson was just what we needed. What a great time we had on our private tour. The woman didn't want to charge us since she's not a guide. She could have fooled us. I googled the tour cost on me phone while we were finishing up and paid her the full cost. So grateful for her time. A wonderful asset to the property. We could tell she loves her job.
  • As a member of the Harrisburg Academy family, I loved my visit to this historic home.
  • Making a come-back! Going to be magnificent!
