This is a nice stop if you are viewing the local history of the area. The architecture of the house is grand and lets you step back into an era of yesterday.

You can either view the house solo or get a guided tour. The tour lasts about 45 minutes and it is well worth the $6 per person. I would go back. The property was old but maintained. The history of the house is interesting.
