We loved learning about the Davenport family and touring their home. It's amazing how tiny people were back then - the shoes and eyeglasses would never fit an adult today!

Gets overlooked I think as it's close to the Owens-Thomas house but it's cheaper and I think more interesting. Lovely guide who was knowledgeable and passionate about the house. For me this is a better bet than the Owens-Thomas House.
