We included this in our many stops of the Civil Heritage Trail in Montgomery, AL. The house was well kept and filled with period pieces and history. It was self guided and informative.

The house appears to be well maintained and it is filled with many interesting relics from when the Jefferson family lived here. The hosts are very hospitable and admission is free.

I didn't exactly know what to expect out of my visit but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The grey haired host was very knowledgeable and inviting. It was a quick self guided tour but they provide booklets and a guide if you have questions.

We visited quickly on the way through to Florida. It is a beautiful home and the host that greeted was so nice. It is full of history. My review is a bit different in that it has an energy to it that is suppressing. Paranormal....More
