My daughter and I took the tour together and we were staying the night at the Farnsworth House. I was well done and interesting. We did the basement tour.

Kyle was our guide, a young man with an education in history. He was very informative, knowledgeable and polite. The walking tour we took was the East Cemetary/Farnsworth House. As I said, Ghosts, well.... but the history is fantastic.
