Although the house is showing signs of age the view from the top of the hill is to die for. What a place to choose for burial.

Thank you for responding. We got married there years ago but had the property all day so wasn't sure about closing time. We made the drive and Firefly is open Monday - Thursday and on Saturday from 9am - 5pm.
