What a wonderful place to visit. Museum curators have spent a lot of time and effort to preserve the home, relics and HISTORY of the place. Just a wonderful step back in time to the way it was.

I was not sure of this visit at first, but it caught my attention from the time I entered the house. My mother suggested that we visit it but with reserve we did, Loved it. Lots of history of Tyler and the surrounding cities.

What a nicely maintained antebellum mansion. Large rooms decorated with furnishings of the day. Every room was as grand as the one you left. Just an amazing home of a time long ago.

This beautiful mansion is in downtown Tyler Texas. Be sure to visit the adjacent little park. The house is handicap accessible but no access to the second floor for wheelchairs. Nevertheless, the first floor is worth visiting by itself. I urge you to give a...More

I want to say $5.00 each but it’s really a donation of what ever you want.

Not sure too, but there is an entrance mon the side. If ever it's wheelchair accessible, it will only be the first floor. The second floor is a narrow staircase. Call them too, they're very helpful.
