The tour guide was compelling and fun, but to be honest, the main thing I remember was gawking over the home! We all got to play an antique arcade game that was original the house (and I stunk at). Great visit!

The Seelye Mansion should not be missed if you're passing through Abilene. Built in 1904 with ALL original furnishings, it is now run by a man who clearly loves this house -- and with good reason. It's a fascinating window into the past.
