Nice place, staff was friendly. Very clean I wouldn't bring a small child here as they would probably be bored, as only paintings and signs to read inside. 12 year old + to learn history is recommended age.
Historic house in Yonkers. Get history. Friendly staff
Loved the information and bit of history it preserved. Good place to go for a lesson on how people lived back then.
This historic building is wiped clean of furnishings and, although mildly altered and updated, retains significant architectural elements of it's original structure. Well worth the $5 self-guided walk-through. Our host manning the entrance was wonderful.
One of the nicer things in yonkers, can't imagine why anyone would give it 1 star. The building is quite beautiful.
