“A step back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

The house is welled maintained, and reminds one of days gone by.
With all the detail fixtures and period pieces.
It brings a lot of culture to an area that needs reminding of the great African American history

“Beautiful”

This home has great history and worth the stop if you want to go across the Hampton Roads Bridge tunnel. Lots to see and great tours.
