So much fun. Experienced the house during the day (they offer ghost tours too). Guide was knoweldgeable not only about the house's architecture ,but also it's many reincarnations - - home, brothel, retail store. Teens in the group were engaged.

The walking tour portion was only $8 more for another hour. That portion is somewhat pointless and boring unless you want to hear a brief history of 3 locations and walk around a lot. The sorrel weed house itself was more worth the money. Upstairs...More

As others have said, in order to tour the inside of the Sorrel Weed House, you have to book with the house directly. In the evening, on the side of the house, just beyond the big black gates, there is a podium where someone... More
