Its always a pleasure to walk through this house and see all of the artifacts and HISTORY. It's a shame part of it caught on fire...but I hear the restoration is coming along quite well.

The Whaley House is a beautiful example of a turn of the century home. The docents are knowledgeable as they describe life in a bye gone era and the history of the Whaley family. A visit during the Christmas season is a special event.

I'm sorry, but who cares how a bank executive and his wife lived? It's a small house, not fit for plus-sized or handicapped people, and awful for crowds.

You can get lost in the Gilded Age here in the home of Robert J. Whaley and his family who contributed so much to the City of Flint. Take the docent tour and do not go through the house on your own because you will...More
