Stephenie did a great job with the tour. Even my 17 year old son enjoyed it. The price is very reasonable. We both learned something. I have toured a lot of historic homes, and they have done a good job with this one.

The price is $5 per person. It is less if you are a college student, military, or a senior citizen.
