Every summer we enjoy Shakespeare in the Park. The gardens are always immaculate and beautiful. We get to take a picnic and explore the grounds prior to the show. It’s always a fun,fantastic evening! more »
This place is so so awesome! We went during labor day and drove 5 hours to see it. It was definitely a very special place. The amount of money that too to build this place has got to be insane. Almost everything inside is wood and just wow'ed me all the way through. I would not go on a rainy day. A portion is outside. The house is huge. You won't be disappointed.
This historic home is nothing short of amazing. Had 1 day and did not know what to do so took my elderly mom. We loved it and it was not expensive and made for a lovely afternoon. Must see this if you have time.
