My husband and I found the Great House on the internet for the 4th of July holiday of 2013. I wished to visit the Carl Sandburg State Historic Site but had no idea that our B&B, owned by nurse and emergency specialist Betty McNaught, would be just as interesting as Sandburg's birthplace! We were thrilled with her knowledge of the Williard family who built the home in 1857 and were amazed at how she has succeeded in bringing the 73 family members together from across the country to learn about their history!! The home itself is clean and comfy and Betty's breakfast are superb.
