I've been inside several times for various functions. It's a beautiful, old house, but I've always felt it could be used in a better way. For example, if they furnished all the rooms in period style, they could give tours of the house itself. I'm not sure if this house has an upstairs, but if so, those rooms could also be part of the tour. This house was built with an unusual octagon shaped room on one side which is now used for displays - like a recent one of the Civil War, or local artists work, etc. But if they furnished it in a luxurious, comfortable manor, they could also use it to give afternoon teas now and then. I'm not sure if they open it up for functions, like weddings or receptions, but that might be another way for the Preservation Society to get much needed funding in order for them to continue doing all their good works. These are just a few ideas that might benefit them.
