This historic house was an amazing site to see. I opted to take a self guided tour and walked by myself. They do offer a guided tour which I would recommend. The house and the Slave Quarters were well worth the 10$ entry fee. If...More

You can wander at leisure and/or do the tour. It started with a movie and ended with being told we could wander at will. Took about 1.5 hours. Each of the three houses has their own focus - this one is architecture. It would have...More

If you are a history buff (or a Davidson College alum) you need to see this beautiful antebellum home. Yes you get a glimpse into antebellum life, warts and all.

I don't remember what the cost of a senior ticket is. You're asking a senior who can't remember. I do remember that the house is not air conditioned. It is worth being warm just to see it and hear about the family that lived... More
