The Lyndhurst Mansion is a must for adults who love old mansions. The walking path along the river is easy and beautiful. Our tour guide was excellent, and very Knowledgeable.

First get a map. If you don't take a tour this will help you to navigate the cemetery. It's beautiful. Roads are tight. Not recommended for RVs. It was fascinating to look around at the different gravesites and the date. Take you time.
