For our trip, we had Matt as our tour guide. He was extremely good, and knew why we were there (school project). He was extremely fun to listen to, and made the tour memorable.

Matt the docent was very knowledgeable and accommodating. It was interesting to see various add-ons to the original house. Many of the items actually belonged to the Moreheads.
