  • The mansion is absolutely beautiful. However, if you are hosting an event there in the summer and they tell you that there is A/C in the building it is only on the 3rd floor. My aunt hosted my bridal shower there yesterday and we really wanted to have it outside in the garden. However, since the weather was going to be in the 90's we decided to have it inside for the comfort of the guests and a couple of my aunts have breathing problems so the heat outside was going to be an issue. My poor guests were sweating to death and it was probably cooler outside with the breeze. We were so disappointed since we will only be able to have ONE bridal shower. This isn't something that we can do over again. So disappointing and embarrassing.
  • Very beautiful and interesting. Definitely worth it!!
  • Beautiful, historic building, and a perfect venue for a wedding!
  • Nice tour and 90% of the inside is original. We took the tour, which is offered in particular days. Air conditioned inside and an interesting visit. The guide knew just everything you would be interested in knowing.
  • its crazy cool. take the tour it is worth it
