“Interesting place for a ghost tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

We weren't planning on visiting this until we saw that they had ghost tours and then I made it a must do. We had so much fun doing this, it made for interesting pictures. Everyone was having a great time and the staff was very friendly.

“Well worth the visit”

The tour guide was spectacular- one felt as though you were interacting with an 18th century soldier. One get a good feel for the experience of those men and women who died their.

“bittersweet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

This is an interesting place for people to visit, historically bittersweet when you really stop and think of what really happened to these poor people in the longrun.
