  • If you love history &/or century old architecture this is a must! I visited on a weekday in the off season & wasn't sure what to expect. So glad I went. My tour guide was absolutely amazing & so excited to share everything she knew about the family, the house, the buildings... it was an amazing experience!! Thank you!! I will definitely be back someday with my daughter.
  • Great slice of history in downtown Raleigh. The are several buildings in the property. The buildings are full of antiques and the staff is very knowledgeable about the buildings and artifacts. On our tour the lady was extremely knowledgeable about the site and history in general. She was patient and answered our many questions.
  • A little gem of quiet, past time reflection hidden in the midst of a busy city! Step into the past w/the meticulously maintained gardens & property to learn a little of how/where Raleigh, NC got its roots. Extremely affordable admission and all the staff were so pleasant, cheery & informative. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and clearly loved her job. Even the multitude of varying birds seem to love living there as birdsong surrounded us on our lovely spring break outing. They even do school & adult groups. Only a small break out of your day to get the whole experience-well worth it! 😊
  • Walked in herb garden and sang with shape note singers in the small chapel. Perfect warm, sunny spring weather! Beautiful and peaceful place to visit. Tour is definitely worth it!
  • Great house with dedicated staff. It was a great way to take a step back in time with a tour of the grounds.
