We went quite late so had a slightly hurried visit. Given his important place in the history of the town it is worthwhile to visit his home. The docents are very informative and bring the place alive.

My husband took my nieces (21 and 14) and we all enjoyed it so much. There was something for everyone. The views were spectacular and the history of the home was interesting.

An actor played the part of the Marquis de Mores and entertained us for 20 minutes prior to our touring the house. Recommend you time your visit to see a presentation.

Wow, I can't believe they still maintain this property as well as they do. It makes sense since it is the home of the driving force to establish the region as something other than wilderness. The home furnishings are the most amazing to me. Both...More

The facilities are wonderfully maintained and you can get a real feel for the history of the place. It is really wonderful that so much of the original furnishings are there.

We loved this home, mostly kept in tact by the family and historical society. Also we were lucky enough to see 'the Marquis' the day we were there. He came out and gave us so much information about himself, his time, his wife, and the...More

Really enjoyed the history in this home. 95% of the furnishings etc are the originals. The wife left the home and never came back. Someone was hired for 50 years just to care for the home.
