This was a great find. We enjoyed the walking tour. Our guide Shannon was very knowledgeable and made history fun. We learned a lot and the house and grounds were stunning!

It is a small historical park. The buildings are restored with keeping in mind their value to history. Beautiful flowers and gardens.
