You’ll learn how the restoration architects, architectural historians and craftsmen are meticulously restoring Jefferson’s vision for the “best dwelling house in the state.” Admission is $20 per person in advance, $25 at the door; reservations are encouraged.
Tours take place on May 3rd and May 9th with tours starting at 11am and 2pm each day.
