Highly recommended tour! So interesting and very informative! A lot of the tour is sitting down so you don’t get worn out. Vickie has really done her research and you can tell that she really enjoys telling people about the history of this place.

Tours are by appointment. Do you have a particular day and time in mind? The latest that tours can be conducted on Saturday is 6:00. You will need to set aside two hours for the tour.
