Enjoyed the tour and being able to look around in the kitchen, basement and the grounds. A lot of history in one beautiful place.

Loved this site, full of history! The tour guide was extremely informative and we enjoyed learning about the history of Berkeley very much. We will definitely be back to spend more time on the grounds.

This tour made our Thanksgiving the best ever. Our tour guide, Shane, was awesome. My 13 year old is still talking about the massive amount of history we learned in a small amount of time. I highly recommend that every family visit for Thanksgiving to experience the lingering spirit of the first Thanksgiving and the memories of many of our founding fathers and first presidents who visited the house over the years.
