I didn't actually go INSIDE the house, but I did stop long enough to walk around the grounds and take some pictures. It is picturesque.

Because I'm a fan I was willing to overlook some of the deficiencies others have identified. I wouldn't argue with any of those deficiencies. I was willing to read and study to extract tidbits of information. It's there. Where he grew up and where he...More
