A restored mansion that is now used as Welcome Center. Very historic. Tours are offered throughout the house to show off the property.

Bathrooms were clean. We were hoping for a place inside to eat our sandwiches because it was 25° outside. Everything except the bathrooms was closed up by 6:30 when we arrived.
