She was nice, but she had very limited knowledge about the house, the artifacts, history of the home and our country. E.G. "The map in the entry hall only goes to the Mississippi because we hadn't figured out how to cross it yet" we crossed the Atlantic, but the Mississippi had us stumped.
  • Really cool tour, I love learning about these kind of places. The gift shop was good too.
