“Your beeswax's worth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

A lovely historic house on Long Island Sound, tucked away in a corner of the Bronx near Westchester County. Not a lot of furniture or furnishings, but the house itself is historically and architecturally significant. Definitely worth the trip. I never knew what the term "mind your beeswax" meant until a docent here explained it.
