Was just there for a wedding ceremony and reception, and the outside ceremony was absolutely gorgeous. Enough space to move, plenty of places to hide the bride until it's time, and the inside for the reception had plenty of space to eat and dance. All in all a good day!

Everything about this home is enchanting, the grounds outside to every detail that has been meticulously maintained inside. My best friend will be having her wedding here, and I am beyond excited for the event! The charm of the home is going to make decorating a simple joy.

I genuinely recommend anyone visiting or living in Austin stop by for a self guided tour!

Beautiful historic home that belonged to the founder of the Hormal Company. Furniture is original as the family went to California for retirement and left the house and it's furnishings to a group that kept it in tact, very nice addition to the SPAM museum

Austin is all about Hormel, so I thought I'd go and see the Historic home. The house is a mansion right in the middle of town, yet it doesn't look out of place. The landscaping was beyond fantastic, with all the blooming flowers and mature trees, and the swine statue!
They don't make houses like this any more, well worth the time to stop and learn of the earlier years.

Run by a private preservation group. Upon entry, They ask for $3 donation for the maintenance of the historic house.
