  • Fabulous and very interesting historic site! Alyssa, one of the park rangers, gave a very informative and interesting tour through all the rooms in the house. I was dramatically impacted to see the accomplishments and National impact of a man with a weak heart and asthma but a lot of determination and persistence! Very highly recommended if you are a history buff or if you are in need of inspiration.

The tour historian Tripp is super knowledgeable and was extremely nice to my children because he knew we were there for the Jr. Ranger Program. Bit is amazing this is here and it is all free by the US Park.
