Beulah, our guide, provided local insight into this fascinating property. It is a step back in time and has a quirky collection of exhibits. The kitchen and its artifacts are not to be missed!

Often overlooked by most tourists, but was once the home of the governor whose son later settled in Williamsburg, VA. So there are some excellent connections between the two locations. very knowledgeable volunteer staff. Well worth the $5.00 fee to enter.

Stopped by here our last 40 minutes of our trip. Very nice woman gave us a tour. Wish we had more time to visit and chat. Small place, but interesting to see.
