Didn't think I would like it but I could have spent the day looking at everything. Loved the old style mansion. The displays in the museum were really top notch and we'll maintained. Not a bad idea for a rainy day.

Beautiful elegant house. Rich history of steamboats. Can't wait to see what they do with the carriages house. Spent almost 2 hours looking and reading.

Absolutely incredible workmanship throughout the house, very knowledgeable staff. The house is full of handmade woodwork and carvings that will amaze you and a very interesting history of the property, the owners and shipping.

The Steamboat museum is fascinating and gives one a view into the ship building industry that Jeffersonville is noted for. The museum is chocked full and restored beautifully. During the summer the Chatauqua is a must.

A great place to visit to learn about steamboat history; the house was built by the owners of a steamboat building company and the interior woodwork was carved by steamboat workers. A fascinating history and it was also nice that several of the upstairs rooms...More
