Visiting friends in Aiken who thankfully took us to this wonderful, well-cared for old southern home that rambles on and on and is filled with wide-ranging collections that flow from parlors, to ball rooms, to kitchen, to bedrooms, to basement to carriage house. To fully enjoy all it has to offer be sure to give yourself a couple hours, maybe more. History of the city and region, horses and hotels and country retreats, politics, wars and energy with toys, household gadgets, blacksmiths and a miniature circus thrown in. It is quite eclectic and wide-ranging but well put together, with knowledgable but not in-your-face staff. And its free, but leave a good donation to encourage such good behavior!
