Brittany is a GREAT guide/storyteller. I’m glad we did the tour because she and the history is very interesting. My only feedback would be the environment. In particular the upstairs had stuff just lying around (like it was a storage area) I would expect that...More

This is a really cool place. Very old building. Cigar smoke is awful. I would have stayed longer if the smoke wasn’t so bad. Ghost tour was interesting. Our guide Noah was great.
