Visited as a part of Art Festival over 4th of July. It was great to be able to fully tour every level from basement to ballroom of the beautiful old home.

Hip and happening art gallery in the heart of Old Town that hosts wonderful events (both private and public) throughout the year, supports locals and also has a lovely gift shop.
