Our tour guide was Seth made the tour interesting while being historical to the Civil War heritage of the home. The house itself is not large, about 8 rooms, including a second floor. So you will be standing, walking, and using a staircase.

We visited Saturday morning, and walked in at the start of the tour. Our guide was well-versed and knowledgeable about not only the homes involved, but Civil war history altogether. The Lotz house tour was about an hour long.More
