I enjoyed the history and architecture of this house. Lots of history. Good guide. I recommend a tour of this house along with the museum and Jepson Center package

The property is fascinating, and there is so much history to learn about on the level of this single home. The historic interpreter was very knowledgable and handled some of the less pretty aspects of our history with such candor and grace.

Our guide was incredible knowledgable, passionate and informative. This is not your average mansion tour. It was as much about the people who lived there was also who was enslaved there. So many thing were special about the home and so too were the residents.

Not worth the money. That's not to say it's a bad tour. It's a good tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and cordial. I say it's not worth the money because it is likely more interesting to read the history of the house and family in...More

This was the first of three historic homes my sister and I visited recently. What I appreciated most was that the tour started in the slave quarters prior to touring the home. Our guide stressed the economics of the times and the role enslaved persons...More

That's the only way you can tour the house is with the tour guide and is part of the admission price. It seem the tours run about every 15-20 min.
