For those interested in old architecture and history, this is a "must do" tour. Stately old mansion well preserved to tell an amazing story. The grounds are well kept with beautiful flowers and foliage in the summer. Be sure to add to your "must sees"

This stately property is worth the drive, even at rush hour. Tours are available however we would recommend that you call ahead to determine their hours....we got there too late. The grounds are well-kept as is the exterior of the house. Although I don't know...More
