  • We showed up for the 9:30 tour and found we were the only two there. Our guide, Becky, was warm, inviting and very knowledgeable. The mansion itself is beautifully restored and the period appropriate furnishings are meticulously maintained. The tour was free. Definitely a worthwhile hour spent.
  • I hang out there all the time. They have really good cheap old fashioned suits. And similar views. Watch your wallet while there.
  • The view at night is amazing
