“Nice bit of history”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

The mansion can be seen by tour only, and although the opening hours are posted, on the day we visited at 11am (opening time), no guides were there. We were asked to wait a few minutes and for someone to ready things inside and we'd be allowed to visit on our own. Luckily, about 15 minutes later, the docent arrived - she was very informative, and we would have missed so much without her guidance. The mansion deserves to become more well-known by tourists and locals alike.

“I reallly liked it”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

Amazed me that the mansion looks kinda small by looking at from the outside, but it is not that small after all. It has like divisions and 2nd floors.
U can see all original clothing, personal accessories, furniture, etc
We got there while some other people was being tour and geeeeeeeez we gotta wait outside, we roasted our butts off, they do not have AC waiting room. We waited like 45 min. We took the train from Cary, NC so did not have other option.
The mansion's size and 1 guide would not really being able to hold too many people at the same time. I think u have to call in advance and reserve. We found a coupon in the train, so was really cool. We save some $.
I enjoyed being there and being able to see everything!
