One of the best house tours ever! Ashley so informative. Feel like I could do tour again and see all new things. Would recommend it to anyone who loves history and antiques.

It was a very thorough, unrushed presentation by a very knowledgable guide named Heather. She stopped at the end of each explanation to check for questions and we were able to linger and see items up close, behind the barrier ropes. That does not often happen.

We loved learning the history of the Calhoun Mansion and seeing the amazing antiques and art in the house. M
