“Historic Beauty”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

This was one of the most informative home tours I have ever been on. The staff was absolutely amazing and so knowledgeable about all of the items in the home. It was such a fun way to experience such an amazing home.

“Not visitor friendly”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

The main reason I wanted to come to Amarillo was to see this house. I love touring old houses and learning about their history. From the outside its amazing but it's only opened Tuesday & Thursday by apt so I wasn't able to go inside. We drove by to see it anyway and there wasn't even a sign out front tell you about the house, I guess they don't need the revenue.
