The house was wonderful. It was sadly closed when we were there but we looked in the windows and the outside was so pretty. I love houses like this and could just have walked right in and lived there. The sunroom was really something.

The house is beautiful and being that I grew up in the area I have been on the tour before. It was a good thing, since I knew more about the house and the Hamills than the tour guide. There was often silence as he was trying to figure out what to say, like "this is the kitchen"... okay.... so... More

The Hamill House was recommended to us by the Visitor Information Center we found as we entered Georgetown. The Center called and the Hamill House was opened just for us. They are usually closed in the winter. We had an extremely private tour. The history of the house was most interesting. The staff member who showed us around was excited... More

Businessmen built fortunes and created jobs. Politicians were, then, as now, well, politicians. That's what Mr. Willaim A Hamill was: a silver investor, the tour guide tells you, but then he goes on to explain: he hang around with politicians, was one of the first state senators, the Governor nominated him to be the Railroad commissioner... All this in between... More

I LOVED touring historic homes and I've done MANY! This one would be in my top 5! Pat, our guide, was beyond amazing! SUPER nice guy and very educated on the place. He knew the answer to every question we asked! He was sweet. Our son was beat up tired (13 years old) and didn't have another tour in him... More

Excellent tour and gorgeous house! The guide was very knowledgeable about the house but also about the history of Georgetown and that really brought everything to life. We'll definitely go back again!

This is a beautiful house and you can experience how the rich lived back in the 20th century! Beautiful decor and fascinating to see just what money could buy you in the early frontier days.

Mr. Hamill who owned and expanded the Hamill House had lots of money and wanted everyone to know it. The wood work inside the house is intricately carved. They had a conservatory right in the house with heat coming up from the floor so they could sit in the garden even in the dead of winter and enjoy the flowers.... More

Nancy H, Executive Director at Hamill House Museum, responded to this review

First let me apologize for your tour. No Director ever wants to see such a review. I take full responsibility for this, as I need to do a better job in training. However, we have a wonderful tour guide that I have asked to come in and do some training with the man that took you and your children around,... More

We took the Georgetown Loop and missed this museum years back as it was closed. Went today and arrived when a tour was in progress. The woman didn't give a very good tour and hurried us along - so we missed several rooms as she wanted us to join what was in progress. The house is very nice and I... More
