I have taken guests to visit the Mercer Williams house in every season of the year since it has been open to the public. It is not an exceptionally large mansion but it is a beautiful home. The tour consists of a brief tour of the outside garden which is not tended well and a directed tour of the four rooms and half bath of the downstairs. It is a brief tour for the cost. My biggest beef is that this house is dirty. From the windows, to the doors to the woodwork and then to the dusty interior with dirty chandeliers, etc. I understand that repairing the outside rod iron is costly. Painting a home like this is also costly, We were told repairs were not done because the house would have to be shut down for tours. Perhaps. Cleaning can be done in the evenings when the house is not open. There is no excuse for the condition this house is shown to the public. This home should be sparkling. It is the way it is photographed for promotion and I assume it was maintained this way when Jim Williams lived there.
