  • This historic mansion stands out from others. I cannot go here enough, just make sure they are open!!! The walk in feeezer, painted ceilings, and secret stair passages are interesting. I would love to rent the guest house. #LetsGuide Family Friendly
  • Of all the historical homes in Independence, this is by far my favorite! Almost all of the furniture and items in the home belonged to the family. If you’re a history enthusiast or love older architecture, you will love this gem of Jackson County. The women who serve as guides are wonderful. Fran was our guide and she was as fun and friendly as she was knowledgeable. Don’t forget to get your Queen of the Pantry cook book at the gift shop.
  • We went for the tour, which was delightful if you enjoy history and old manors. The grounds and the house are well managed and beautiful. They host wedding receptions and other related types of events-a wonderful and unique setting.
  • We had a great time on our tour & the tour guide that we had for our group (we were split into 2 groups) was fantastic! She never made us feel like we were misbehaving (because we were & we're all over the age of 40! Lol!) and she stayed on track, as well as repeated information because some of us were either checking something else out that caught our eye or we were just talking. Kudos to the tour guides & ours MOST ESPECIALLY & although I cannot remember her name, she knows who she is! The house was beautiful & it was so Extremely cool that we could actually sit on the furniture & carefully touch historic items, to learn about the paintings & the history behind them. My personal favorite was the unfinished 3rd floor...wow!! The architecture is just phenomenal! My other favorite room was the kitchen/walk-in chiller room. Such great history. Kinda ironic that my 2 favorite places were for the servants back in the day. This was 1 of 2 things my Aunt Marsha wanted to do on her 70th birthday & thank you to the staff for helping make her day even more special.
  • Great fun! Well organized. Lots of wine selections but mostly sweet stuff which I'm not a fan. Overall it was an amazing experience!
