This is a very beautiful home. It is furnished as it was when Gertrude Smith lived there. It is free to tour and if you are interested in old homes this would be a place to visit.

Don’t miss out on this tour. It’s self guided which made it nice to be able to go at your own pace. Read up on each room and take plenty of pictures.

My husband and I toured this house. It is just on the next corner from the bed and breakfast where we were staying so we just walked to it. Nice to see if you like old homes, antiques, and history.
