We visited for a Geocaching event on the grounds but decided to tour the house as well. The guide was extremely helpful and the house is a pure joy to visit. The history behind it and the artifacts on display were fascinating. Be prepared to climb stairs, there is no elevator.

This is quaint jewel full of interesting artifacts and everything in the house was donated from the owner's family. The on site guide gave a brief but comprehensive summary of the home's history. She was also available to answer any questions we had. I have been here for almost 5 years and am glad I took the time today to... More

This museum is the real deal-everything in it is authentic, the home is beautiful and the grounds are well kept. It is definitely worth a visit!

Because of a social event, we also toured the house. Lots of historical artifacts and restorations from the late 1800's really made for an interesting and enjoyable tour. My favorite was the different sets of porcelain dishes and table settings.

We had a sweet docent give up a snapshot tour, the other option being a 20 minute movie. All the belongs were donated along with the house and gardens. A very nice display of clothes worn by the owners.

If you enjoy beautiful old homes for their architecture, this is a great house to visit! If you enjoy seeing how the original owners lived, this is a gem! The original owner left the house and its entire contents to the city of Tyler. Yes, the antique furniture, rugs, clothing and nick-knacks were all very interesting, and this collection is... More

This great historic home and grounds are preserved with the last owner's belongings and a ton of great history on view. It's like stepping back in time. For only a $2 donation, they show a great 20 min. video of the home's history, you can walk through both floors of the home, and walk the grounds, and the workers were... More
