  • Visitors must maintain a minimum of six feet of physical distance from the tour guide at all times.
  • One-way directional flows will be indicated by the tour guide.
  • Visitors will be strongly encouraged to wear gloves, both to prohibit the spread of germs via surfaces but also to preserve the house’s artifacts.
  • Tour guides have completed required training sessions to understand and implement modified safety procedures and sanitation practices to ensure the health of both staff and visitors.

Interior group tours are not permitted at this time.
