Adsmore House And Gardens

Adsmore House And Gardens

Visitors are invited to tour the home which reflects the era of top hats and fans, graphophones, lavender scented sheets, elegant china and crystal, and button shoes. Tours center on events which took place in the lives of John Parker Smith and Nancy Bond Kevil Smith and their five children: Mayme, Kate, Shell, James Urey (Did) and Selina. This 1850s mansion, log house and gun shop are decorated according to periods in the Smith and Garrett families' lives.
