We stopped here and were surprised by how much we learned and enjoyed the visit. It was such a pleasant and surprisingly had lots of facts and history that I had never been introduced to before. Definitely recommend.

Park Ranger was very interesting and knowledgeable. Only the lower floo is open plus the side building, tobacco barn and a corn crib. One can also visit the buriel area of the family. It's free and worth the visit.

Toured Thomas Stone NHS; appreciated the NPS ranger tour. Overall pretty bland site. Thomas Stone also seemed to play almost no role in the Revolution...not sure why he has a NHS.
