  • This is such an amazing historical journey. It is also a beautiful restoration. The craftmanship is outstanding. What was done without the aid of modern-day tools is a testament to those craftsmen...

  • Just got back from a great tour of Stetson mansion. We toured all 3 floors and were In awe of all the beauty & history of this beautiful house. The owners have done such a wonderful job restoring the house and grounds. Joanne was a great guide and was full of knowledge of the history of the house and Stetson family. I have also been there for several Christmas tours which are unbelievable.
