The tour guide was compelling and fun, but to be honest, the main thing I remember was gawking over the home! We all got to play an antique arcade game that was original the house (and I stunk at). Great visit!

The Seelye Mansion should not be missed if you're passing through Abilene. Built in 1904 with ALL original furnishings, it is now run by a man who clearly loves this house -- and with good reason. It's a fascinating window into the past.

Owner Terry Teigens conducted tour and he was magnificent. The house came alive as he led us through every room and described every cranny. Not to be missed as this was best thing going in Abilene and I've been to them all.

It was so unique because you actually got to be in the rooms, could actually play the piano, and we even got to use the bowling alley too! It is all authentic and the gentlemen showing the house knows all about it as he bought...More
