It was closed when we were there but there was a wonderful man that opened the door and gave us a brief downstairs tour and lots of history. What a wonderful thing to do for we visitors from Ohio.

This mansion was very nicely done and our docent was very well versed on everything I asked. I was highly impressed.

I've only been here twice for the Wine Festival. Nice open lot with a historical "mansion". Well worth the 30 minutes to tour the home with one of the highly recommended tour guides.
