  • Plan to go back for the tour. Beautiful grounds.
  • This mansion was very nicely done and our docent was very well versed on everything I asked. I was highly impressed.
  • Lots of rich history, knowledgeable guide, gallery to browse while waiting for tour to start.
  • I've only been here twice for the Wine Festival. Nice open lot with a historical "mansion". Well worth the 30 minutes to tour the home with one of the highly recommended tour guides.
  • Attended here for the On to Richmond event. Great historical place and worth visiting. We really enjoyed the Civil War Reenactment! #ontorichmond2017
