This house has some good bones. I love the ornate detail in most of the house. The tour was alright with nothing original belonging to the families that once occupied the home, I was a bit disappointed. There really wasn't a whole lot of history...More

When you want a break from the music oriented attractions this is nice little spot to venture to, especially if you like history and or architecture. It's been restored. They have furnishings and clothes displayed from the era.

This tour was my favorite thing we did in Memphis. The staff was very knowledgeable and you could tell they loved their jobs. The house was beautiful and had so much history, If you go make sure you climb all the way up.

The history of the house was very interesting.They had mostly period pieces there that did not originally belong to the house. The guide was knowledgeable but I thought she put too many of her opinions into the tour. Worth seeing.
