  • Beautiful home! Love the events they have here, especially the fashion show! I have been going to that for 20 + years with my grandmother & my children
  • This place was awesome. Can't wait to go back when they get the top floor done. They were doing the windows so we couldn't go up there but will be going back.
  • Lots of original items and much of home just as it was last day owner lived there. Interesting presentation by well informed volunteers. Wonderful restoration.
  • Loved it!! We showed up off season and the caretaker still took time to show us around, it's a must see time capsule of what life was like , Beautiful house so well preserved I'd say it's a must especially if You are a history buff. Super big thanks to our guide, I'll never forget our tour!!!!!
  • Well preserved historic home. Docents knowledgeable. Start off point for wagon trains headed west.
