My family and enjoyed an excellent tour with Chris. I did not realize that 90% of the house is original, and Chris shared lots of interesting stories about Riley and every day life in that time period. Chris was very accommodating; it’s really nice to have a great site to visit during this unusual time. I highly recommend!

Very interesting history about an Indiana native son. Did not realize Riley Children's Hospital was named for him. Wonderful preservation of the home where he lived!

A prime historical home - feels like the residents will return in just a moment. Learned a lot about Riley & about the era’s styles, emerging technologies (for the well-to-do), and popular entertainments.
