We were very disappointed to find out they were no longer giving tours. We did meet one of the grandsons who was very nice but shared with us that they are no longer touring.

Good for a rainy day activity. Becoming shoddy but has interesting history. Unfortunately the house and grounds have been allowed to deteriorate.

This is NOT a museum and was never advertised as such. We have visited several times over the years and every tour has been unique. This is a family home and some may think it's within their right to voice their opinions about the state...More

You have to drive 10-15 minutes south on Route 5 from I-70 to find this house. Don't despair. Look for the house on the left soon after entering Bel Aire. You'll see an old peeling sign on your left with the driveway soon after. I...More

This was a magnificent 19th century showpiece. Alas, the 20th century heirs have neglected it, and it can make historic preservationists cringe at the amount of capital it would take to make it presentable. Just waiting for the right Angel to come along, and persuade...More

The last time I was there the cost was $5. I drove by a month ago and the sign was not there. I'm not sure they are open anymore. Search on the Internet to find them.
