Our docent was extremely knowledgeable, but one may also do a self guided tour. The history of the house, family, and area is fascinating. There is free parking and restrooms on the property.

This restored mansion is stunning, The urban slave quarters are well preserved and give a unique perspective to life in the 1860's. The docents are friendly and very informative. There are guided tours as well as audio tours available.

My family, including my 4 yr old grandson enjoyed a wonderful experience touring the immense historic mansion during the christmas season. It was beautifully decorated with several christmas trees some with trains chugging around them. Very friendly environment and staff.
