  • This was a lovely house, and beautifully maintained and restored. I was mostly impressed and enchanted with the neighborhood and history of the surrounding homes. I toured this place with my (large) family, and I need to give a shout out to the staff at this place for handling this group very well.
  • It was ok but I would have likes originalthanks that the own would have used AMD more detail of the house
  • Such a pretty place. Great history but the guide spoke a little too fast to keep up.
  • Very knowledgeable tour guides. A bit to wordy. Tour was basically a mobile history lesson with a very old home as a backdrop. Worth going once. The neighborhood was beautiful.
  • Currently during renovation. Beautiful historical building, charming dwelling with recognized South architecture
