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.
