You ring the old-time bell to enter. The tour guide is extremely knowledgeable and personable. The restoration is on-going and well done. The furniture beautiful. The focus of this tour is life, the people, the home, the furniture.

The home and the tour were really nice. Our guide was very informative and gave great insight of the home when the original family lived there.

The house is currently undergoing restoration downstairs with the faux painting of the times. A very interesting house to see. Different than the other two nearby.

Another must see for anyone interested in history. Built in 1852 this home is a great example of the Victorian era. It is well furnished with period pieces..

Make sure you get the 3 house package deal, the lady that gave us the tour was very into this house, and you could tell she really enjoyed sharing the history of this house.

The Latimer House is truly a unique historic mansion - and you get a wonderful, up-close look (no ropes) at the home and the furnishings (including period clothing, family photographs, and even funeral jewelry!). The Docents (tour guides) relate fascinating details about the home's construction,...More
