Went with a group to tour this beautiful restored mansion. The staff were knowledgeable and although it is a mansion, it is a tad small and can get over crowded the way the rooms are sectioned off. There are some parts still being restored, but it is absolutely amazing to see what has been painstakingly brought back to life. The detailed workmanship is astounding and not to give anything away, you will be amazed at what you thought was wood, is actually plaster masterfully done to look like wood. The story behind the house is interesting, but the most astonishing part is that 90-95% of the items found in the house are actual items originating in the home. My experience in touring historical houses is they try to get period appropriate pieces because they don't have any way of gathering original items, but the curator here is a detective of sorts and has done an incredible job of hunting down the original items and acquiring them. I highly recommend spending the time to take the tour and finish up in the gift shop.
