  • Fantastic tour. Our docent was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and made it a great tour of the home and grounds. Includes all levels including the attic that has very rare toys and a model house...

  • Off the beaten path. A real jewel. Docent Stephen has become #1 of all my national and international visits.

  • What a hidden gem!!! My friend and I had the place all to ourselves with Steve, from the Historical Society. Steve was very informative and went out of his way to share the estate with us. Each room so nicely preserved. The chandeliers with gas and electric options were so cool. 90% of the furniture and items in the house are original to the house. A must see when visiting Independence!!
  • Only cash is taken for tickets currently so be prepared with cash, 10 dollars an adult, kids under 12 are free. This place is a time capsule with a ton of original furniture, decorations, etc, since rooms were shut up undisturbed as family members left home or died. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept it interesting. Nice little gift shop.
  • Everyone was really nice & friendly. Got some good deals from nice folks! The store inside is also lovely & reasonably priced. A lot of nice clothes & jewelry. Can't wait to wear my new earrings!
  • This is a Amazing place to go. A time capsule. Simply stunning.
  • Very beautiful historic mansion with a caring and knowledgeable staff. We were there for the wine festival which was very enjoyable with over 30 Missouri wineries. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
