Just got back from a great tour of Stetson mansion. We toured all 3 floors and were In awe of all the beauty & history of this beautiful house. The owners have done such a wonderful job restoring the house and grounds. Joanne was a great guide and was full of knowledge of the history of the house and Stetson family.
