I have been to plenty of museums & historical houses all over this country, but this one is the most unique because it combines the two. The place is not fancy by museum curating standards, but the collection of things to see is world class! The house was built in 1884 and there is a myriad of things inside that make it definitely worth stopping by. I'd call the number for directions. The best part was the very bright & friendly 85 year old owner who gave us a personal tour.

My family & I really enjoyed our time at this wonderful place. The mansion itself is packed with history, let alone all the objects inside of it. And you receive the always appreciated southern hospitality. I hope that my family & I will be able to go back again soon.
