The husband/wife team who conduct the tours are very friendly and knowledgable - learned a lot! Nothing in the house is roped off but no photos are allowed indoors. You need to allow about an hour and a half for your visit.

My Wife and I had a great time visiting this historic home. The live in tour guides were fantastic and really brought the home's history to life. We learned a lot about life in the Civil War Era in LaGrange Georgia. Definitely worth the visit.
