I took my 14, 12, 10, and 7 year old kids and they really liked the tour. They were still talking about it weeks after we visited.

Our tour guide was GREAT!! Very interesting tour, beautiful house, and great family stories. The restorations are on going, but what has been completed is awesome. Well worth the trip to see this house

We took a mid week drive to LaSalle to see this mansion. I must say that it was really worth the trip. We took the one hour tour which involved just the first floor. You can do the whole house tour that is four hours!...More

What is interesting about old mansions and plantations houses from the Colonial, antebellum, post-Civil War and Gilded Age eras is you learn about the history of people you never heard of before, interesting and successful people like Edward C. Hegeler and Dr. Paul Carus. Hegeler...More
