  • Very interesting tour. We've done several historic home tours and this was one of our favorites. It's a guided tour but not rushed at all and very interesting and informative. Not something I would need to do again but I would definitely recommend it if you enjoy that kind of thing.
  • 🇺🇸The Seward Family has left a Treasure Chest that I have enjoyed learning about for many years. 🌎Seward's huge globe left an awesome impression on me when I visited his house as a little child with my Mother. 🌏Upon seeing Seward's globe again as an adult several years later, it seemed so much smaller...and...William Seward's accomplishments seemed so much greater!🌍 There is always something new to discover and love about the Seward Family.~💙
