Hegeler Carus Mansion Reviews & Ratings
One of the little known places that you don't expect in a small town. The guided tour gives you more of a sense of how influential the Hegelers were
I'm not a huge on historical landmarks, but this was something my husband and I decided to go on our weekend getaway as sort of a "time waster" on a sad rainy day. I've got to say, I definitely enjoyed it a ton and got a lot more out of it than I anticipated. We only toured a small section of the mansion, and there's so much to talk about within an hour. I may consider coming back for the full tour in the future. Noah was also a great tour guide. Thank you for up keeping this landmark and showing it's history to the public. I thoroughly enjoyed!
Very interesting, but needs work.
What a gem! There is a rich history in the people who lived here and beautiful architecture and craftsmanship in the building. We took the 50 minute tour and enjoyed the main floor of the house. If you schedule in advance, they provide a 4 hour tour of the whole house, but these are limited. It sounds intriguing. They are working to restore the building and rely on visitors and donations. It's worth the visit!
This house is beyond description. Absolutely beautiful. Turn of the century mansion. You can spend all day there. I'd love to go back.
