Most of the pieces in this house are not the originals, however it does an excellent job of giving you a feel for what houses back then look like.

The history of the house was very interesting.They had mostly period pieces there that did not originally belong to the house. The guide was knowledgeable but I thought she put too many of her opinions into the tour. Worth seeing.
