Lots to see at this one location. The mansion, ocean & lighthouse all in a well maintained park. Perfect for all ages!

Not much to see because of the deterioration. You can't walk into the mansion or around it. Due to it's condition, much was fenced off for safety reasons. The history, however, was worth exploring if you're a history buff like me.

Wanted to give it more stars but it is an old mansion that is falling apart. You can't go inside it. It is cool piece of history but nothing great.
