  • Superb historic site -- beautiful and well preserved grounds, structures, and gardens, excellent exhibits and interpretive signage, and friendly and helpful visitor center staff. This is what historic preservation ought to be.

  • Beautiful place. Love the style and view.
  • The little museum was very amazing to see, despite how small the place was, it definitely had quality.
