I took the short tour a month ago which sparked my interest to see more of the mansion. I had family in town and we all did the full house tour on Wed June 5. I apologize for no being able to remember our tour guide’s name but she was exceptional. Not only did she have a wealth of knowledge about the mansion and it’s contents but she expressed enthusiasm and took pride in her job. She made the tour feel warm and welcoming because of her sincere delivery. As we were on the tour she noticed something in the child’s room for the very first time. It was some sort of walking stick with an inscription. We were all very excited by her discover. I live in Mount Pleasant and I get quite a few visitors throughout the year. I am going to recommend a tour of the Calhoun Mansion to all of them.Thank you for sharing the mansion to the public. It’s magnificent. Sonja Teichner
