  • The house, tour, and surrounding area were so amazing and enjoyable. We got our tickets at the building next door and enjoyed the gift shop and history wall while waiting for the tour to start. The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. The house itself is so detailed and fancy and historically accurate (except for the AC but I welcomed that!) Well worth the $12.
  • Great square. When the weather is nice and they have activities going around. It is beautiful in the area. The Little House stands alone with all the action around it.
