Went for a festival and enjoy our entire visit. The home was lovely and the guide was so enlightening. The outdoor music was great as was the colonial magic show and colonial crafts. It was a pleasant surprise.

Very knowledgeable tour guide, interactive resources in visitor center. Would be good to see the kitchen when/if it is restored. Furnishings are striking, originals and reproductions. I'd like to return for some of the special events. 12th night sounds like fun.

This was a great little history lesson of the area. The tour guide was delightful, and she had quite a bit of knowledge of the family. Her stories added to the tour of a very nicely displayed historical site
