A rare collection of priceless family heirlooms and humble domestic articles gives modern visitors a glimpse into bygone days. The manse is elegant yet unpretentious, with rooms above stairs reflecting fine details in design and craftsmanship. Below stairs, early household appliances, paper records, and other memorabilia reveal the inner workings of a bustling manor estate from the late-eighteenth to the early-twentieth century.
