  • Excellent place to take our youth for accurate educational purposes. Staff, volunteers and everyone associated with this venue are very professional and helpful. They answer questions and have a good grasp on our state and nations civil war history. The General Johnston's Memorial is an interesting site on grounds that should also be explored.
  • Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Offered their services to my family even when we got there at almost closing time. Follow instructions and you'll get a pretty cool audio tour. Will definitely come back to visit when we have more time to explore. Loved bringing my kids here to learn a little history. Highly recommend.
