This is where my husband and I was married on Oct.1,1995. It was gorgeous. Married tight in front of water fountain. Had our reception on the grounds. A Beautiful Home to visit and a big part of our History.

This tour takes you thru two homes on the Georgetown waterfront. Both are full of antiques and the guide can relate a ton of fun and interesting stories. Bring a camera!

Wonderful old house with lots of history. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and took time to answer lots of questions about the style and period of the house. The story about the history of this house was fascinating. Must have been something to see back in the day.

The price is reasonable. Our tour guide, Dave G, was not only friendly, His narrative was well presented in a story like fashion that made you want to know this... More

Both the Kaminski and Parker Stewart house are well worth making the one stop. Parking is free and these historical homes contain treasures rarely see in small towns. Some of the furniture in these houses take the breath away. The docent who conducted our tour was wonderful. She knew a great deal about the various owners, their history, interactions with... More

I grew up in Georgetown, and I still love visiting the Kaminski House after all these years. It's such a lovely historical home staffed with knowledgeable docents to show you around and answer questions. The Christmas display is out of this world, so DEFINITELY make time for that if you're in the area at that time of the year. Can't... More
