“Very Interesting and Informative Tour..”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We loved this tour. The young man that was our tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. The history of Greensboro is so rich and between this tour and the Carolina History and Haunts Tour we've learned so much.

Their hours are limited and daytime only, but for us it is worth the daytime trip. We will definitely do this tour many times. Can't wait for the Christmas Tour!

“Christmas treat”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Open year round, but especially pretty at Christmas when the staff decorates the home as it probably appeared when the home was first built.

“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.
