Without any prior knowledge of the history of this property, this was a wonderful, educational and engaging tour. Our guide, Doug, was articulate, ultra informed on the Yard. He brought out so many unique interesting details, fulfilling the title "Past Present and Future". His book...More

I had no idea, when we started, just how diverse, and huge this site was. But the tour was loaded to the gills with great historic information of just the type I like... I was shocked to see an entire farm on a rooftop! Plus,...More
