I am not a big history buff nor an I into architecture, but after driving past this place numerous times, decided to take a tour. What a fantastic attraction. Our docent, Ron, was amazing. Full of fun stories and interesting facts. I was surprised at how many kids were on our tour and they were fascinated by the stories Ron had to tell. A beautiful property that is just going to get better over time and the renovations continue. This mansion is massive and stunning. Words nor pictures cannot do it justice. I’m looking forward to going back to see the gardens in full bloom and then again at Christmas for the candlelight tour.

I’ve been attending the Yoga program on Thursdays for over a year and started chair yoga recently with my elderly mother. Our flexibility has improved a hundredfold! We are so impressed with Debbie Angel the instructor. She teaches movements that are endorsed by the Arthritis Foundation which are great for every age! I would miss this class terribly if it went away.
