We had a really good time. We didn't have anything to do Sunday and got on Tripadvisor and saw this as a suggestion. It was amazing. We had a really good time, I would recommend this mansion!

The guide went through everything in regards to the home and the life of William Henry Harrison. It is a beautiful home and worth the time spent. Vincennes is an easy town to tour on foot.
