The house and furnishings are beyond remarkable. Fully furnished, right down to the original oriental rugs. Exceptional interior woodwork, even for the Craftsman style. One of the few, if only Craftsman-style mansions open to the public in the area. Designed, built (in and out) and...More

A truly magnificent house built by the Gamble family of Procter & Gamble in the early 1900's. A remarkable architectural structure that was way ahead of its time. The furniture was also designed the architects. You must take the tour, otherwise you really miss out...More

The Metro line stops around 1 mile from the House, and there is a bus which goes from Metro to very near the House. The directions are posted on the Gamble House website.
