Very interesting historical house, great for an hour or more of entertainment. Lots to see inside, both items and architecture. The guide who greeted us was very helpful and knowledgeable.
BEAUTIFUL. MY NIECES FIRST BDAY PARTY WAS HERE AND IT WAS GORGEOUS
A nice place to drop by if you are around. But do remember that this place is closed in January.
FYI:This place is closed all through the month of January! I bet it is really cool though otherwise.
I love how they decorated every room in the mansion for Christmas, that with the breathe taking details of this historic home make a December visit absolutely memorable.
