Phenomenal. Any one who loves history, England, or beauty should check it out. I was blown away. The story of the home and how it came to be is incredible to me. People with incredible sums of money these days would never build anything so amazing. A very unique find in the middle of Iowa.

It's a sight to see. It will leave you in a transtic state of mind. The family and house gives you a true understanding of the family values, and beliefs. I recommend a tour guide. It's a couple, individual, or family event to attend.

Great historical house with many things to look at. We went on the guided tour and the guide was able to give lots of insights on the house and family. The library and it's collection is amazing.

Beautiful place. It's a huge mansion with ancient architecture and beautiful furniture. You can see hoe different life force back in the early 20th century. You can see appliances from the 1920s. You can take the guided tour and it's nice but it's not necessary. You can walk around and explore the house. However, if you don't take the guided tour, you'llon the library which has some really ancient books and artefacts. Must visit if you are in Des Moines.

This historical home has far more history than what you would normally find in Des Moines, Iowa. Craftsmanship from the 1600s is everywhere, and the flint decorative blocks on the home's exterior is unique. The grounds must be beautiful in warm weather; they were pretty enough in winter.
