It was hot. The guide was Toast. He did a great job explaining the architecture and its history. We moved at an appropriate pace for the heat. Toast had good stories about what went on in the area from 1700’s to now.

Our favorite part was the homes and their history. Our tour guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable. A whole hour of the tour was walking around 4 sides of a cemetery. This was way too much. One side with 15 min would have been fine.
