All access to the inside of each historic building is by guided tour only. Contact us to check availability for your desired tour date by using the Tour Reservation System below. Guided tours are available Monday through Saturday at 1 p.m. Eastern Time. (A very limited number of requests for other times and dates may be available by appointment based on scheduling limitations.) If you are traveling to the region, we encourage you to make a reservation well in advance. The Welcome Center (the Wilsons' two-car garage), which houses a orientation display, shop and the restrooms, is open Monday-Saturday from 12 noon to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. On your tour date, we encourage you to arrive between noon and 12:40 p.m. for your 1 p.m. tour so that you will have time to see the orientation display in advance of the guided tour. Reservations are strongly recommended for everyone and are required for groups of 10 or more. Groups are encouraged to contact us 6-12 months in advance.
NOTE: If you do not wish to take a tour inside the structures, individuals may visit the outdoor areas of the property Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Groups must have reservations.
