Our guide, Douglas, was very good, he was well informed about the North House, the history of the town, and the Civil War events that took place in and near Lewisburg. I recommend this to anyone who likes history, old houses, etc.

You are absolutely right. Although we try to keep a variety of books available for purchase, this particular book has seemingly fallen through the cracks and was not on our inventory. I don't know how or why it was there, but I assure you it...More
