Our group had 3 in it. We were given our own tour and the family that came few minutes later were on their own tour. Very well informed docent. Nicely furnished period rooms. History shared with each room.

The docents will greet you and are dressed in period clothing. The old home has so much history and is always a joy to visit. Out of town visitors are always impressed, especially oldsters as they often reminisce over the old furnishings.

THe Bernhard house is filled with many beautiful artifacts. My favorite room is the fully set dining room table. The original kitchen doesn't look like our modern kitchens of today. The Living History Program brings the parents and children back to the 1890's. Cooking is...More
