The history of the property, owner, and architect is amazing. The grounds and home are unbelievable. We really enjoyed the tours.
If you've got the time and you really enjoy this kind of history/museum take a couple consecutive tours in the same day. The visitor center staff or website can help you decide which tour suits your interests and time management. The earliest tours are the best because there are fewer guests, the guides are fresh, and the sunlight is better for pics. Enjoy!
