The site became a state historic site in 1960. Special public programs are held on a regular basis, and the mansion is open daily for tours. The park is open from 9am to 6pm daily. Mansion tours: 1pm-4pm daily. Special and group tours by appointment. Nominal charge for tours. Location: County Road 16 (Sardis Road), 8 miles south of Union.
