Besides seeing the structure of is early 1800's house, we learned about Mr. Lanier, about his financial support of the civil war and the state of Indiana. The guide was very knowledgeable and ready to answer questions.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot during our tour. The mansion was very cool and we were able to view every room. The price was $10 per person which I thought was a little steep but overall a good experience.

It's a nominal fee of like $5.00 or so. I was with a special group and our admission was pre-paid. It's worth twice the price.
