INFORMATION ABOUT TOURS:
Tours generally last 40 minutes at each house. When planning on touring both houses, please be patient as we make sure to slot you in with adequate time to see both properties. Your online ticket is a guide to the general time frame, but we may adjust this to accommodate you once you arrive.
Access the entrance to Woodlawn mansion through a brick path from the parking lot and check in at the mansion house. If you want to purchase Pope-Leighey tickets for the same day of your visit, please always come to Woodlawn mansion to buy your tickets. There are no tickets available for sale at the Pope-Leighey House itself.
Walking to our houses: Woodlawn mansion is only a few steps away from the visitor parking lot. The Pope-Leighey House is a 5-7 minute walk from the Woodlawn mansion. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for a tour of the Pope-Leighey House if that is in your itinerary, to allow enough time to purchase your ticket and walk back to the house. Due to the small interior at the Pope-Leighey House, tours are limited to no more than 16 visitors per group and therefore, there may be to be a longer waiting time on weekends. The last tour of the day is almost always sold out at Pope-Leighey.
