There is an elevator to the kitchen, but you can't enjoy the place without climbing the stairs. I thoroughly enjoyed the architecture and the color schemes. It is an intriguing story of Mr. Metz. Built in 1900 Moorish design. Eleanor (volunteer) was a real delight...More

Serves as a Visitor Information Center. Mildly interesting if you're bored and looking for something to kill an hour, otherwise unremarkable.

Interesting to see how the house was set up, fancy for the time period. Should have more flowers outside.

This is a self guided tour of the house and grounds. There is quite a bit of history of early Quincy here. Not really a lot to see.

cheap admission; self guided; very short stop as it s a very small structure; we went as we saw it in “Mysteries at the Museum”. View of the Mississippi.

Interesting, but a quick once over is all you need to see this. I was disappointed that the builder chose this beautiful spot overlooking the river, and there was no place to enjoy it inside the house. Windows on that side were small and high.

Nice historic building but it doesn't take long to tour it however the $3.00 admission fee is well worth it
