A gentleman who gave the tour, whose name escapes me, was incredibly knowledgeable about the site and patiently took photos of me for me upon request. An underrated nugget of a Delaware tourist attraction.

Burn it to the ground and one could truly speak of it as "History".


Shannon Harris

Been there twice. Once with school and the other time with my fiancée. It is free and they do accept donations. It is beautiful. Mostly all the info is correct. They do events.

Great historical sight

Nancy Attard

Our visit started with a video explaining who John Dickerson was and his influence on American history. After a short walk up to the house, we had an amazing tour. Our tour guide just loves his job and it really showed. He greeted us on the front steps in period costume and showed us though the house explaining the Dickerson family history and talking about all the people that lived there. He took time to answer everyone's questions and even took extra time with our tour because it was not too busy. A lovely experience! A very important part of the history of Delaware and the United States. And it was totally free!

This is a must-see if in Dover. You are greeted by staff wearing period pieces then shown an informative video before walking over to the mansion. The tour guide is waiting to greet you by the home. Each room had its purpose and our guide was a wealth of information. We made sure to give a donation to help preserve this treasure.

Benjamin Grim

Excellent place to view the history of years gone by. Was a good presentation. The grounds are interesting. Well worth it!

Paul de Bie

(Translated by Google) Nice. Piece of history. Free tour. (Original) Leuk. Stukje geschiedenis. Gratis rondleiding.

Richard Gates

On this site can be seen the main John Dickinson house as well as other buildings where slaves lived. You leave here with a wealth of knowledge about early Delaware history and the wider history during the formative years of the country. The tour guides are very knowledgeable. Plan to spend 2 hours here.

Vitali Hostiuk

Immerse in Delaware and American history while visiting this well preserved plantation. The whole visit with the house tour doesn't take more than an hour and a half. Definitely watch the video in the barn.

Lynn Wilkins

I grew up in Delaware but had never been here for a tour. It was an awesome tour. The tour guides were terrific especially young Tyler.

Karen VanderWaal

This place was nice. The grounds were beautiful and the interior was very cool. The tour guide wasn't the best, but overall it was a nice visit. It's free, so they work with donations. If they charged admission, they would be able to afford to do a better presentation to visitors. So don't expect to get the same experience as Monticello or Mt Vernon.

The guides were very knowledgeable and wonderful. However i wish they would recomend an age that children should be to enjoy things like this. The children were very behaved but pretty much board to death.

Frederick Tate

A piece of history you can touch. Step back in time minutes away from Dover Air Force Base. One of my favorite spots in Delaware!

Richard Shehorn

Love this site..always greeted warmly..and the dossiers are so informed..Gloria Henry the site manager and her number 1 Vertie Lee are so eager to make your experience at the museum unique and enjoyable. I highly recommend a tour through the Mansion..

Okay visit. The plantation was beautiful and well maintained. The tour was not that great.

Dakota K Clayville

Evan McHenry

Although the thought of a plantation as a historic site is uncomfortable, it is important to see what life was like during the period and the way the owners and slaves lived to encourage us to never move backwards on our way to equality.

Gray Hare

Great piece of history. Very informative tour. well worth the tour of the home of one of the architechs of the Constitution.

Justin Messick

Jeff Sams

A great place for a visit if you love history. However, I would loved to have seen more. I guess I expected a larger site. The staff was excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable. My wife and I received a private tour which was really cool. This place really loves visitors and loves to share the unique history of this founding father with visitors.

Sarah Pearce

I always love visiting here! I learn something new every time!

Amy Dows

Interesting and enjoyable visit. Learned about John Dickinson contributions to the history of America.

Pam W

Great historical pre-civil war colonial mansion. It felt like you were back in colonial times and furniture/ antiques are authenic for time period.

Sara Neave

Fascinating history and amazing views. Knowledgeable tour guides in the house, and there was even a cook in the kitchen baking gingerbread - all in period dress. Absolutely worth a visit!

Penny Marvel

It was very hot at the time but it was worth it!

Natalie Jewell

Great trip!!!

Capt. Gerry Hare

The plantation is a historic rendering of plantation life in the early days od Delaware

James Walker

Awesome tour with a wonderful guide.

Julien Vercelli

Amber Wechtenhiser

I feel like the one older tour guide lady was getting annoyed with students that had alot of questions.

Kathy Wolfe

For critics of "No plantation should be a tourist site" didn't bother to find out that DICKINSON FREED HIS SLAVES while alive. For those former slaves who stayed, Dickinson housed and employed them. He fought the culture he was born into and corrected his behavior! He should be honored. Historic site worth seeing!

Bruce Young

William Baker

Clarissa Ward

Great house of history and culture

Glenn Pupino

Excellent! Staff was outstanding! Great displays. Very informative!

Chris Sanfino

A nice Colonial era home to explore on the way to the Delaware beaches. The movie was interesting, yet long, describing John Dickinson's life and passions. The tour of the home was especially interesting and thorough. The tour guide answered all questions with a breadth of knowledge. Grounds and house are particularly photogenic.

Si Rodgers

My cousin was visiting from England and was intrigued by a tourist attraction that was a plantation. I had to agree, the word made me uncomfortable. So we visited and took the tour. I am so pleased we did, the tour guides were wonderful. They gave a great presentation and I am glad this group preserved this living memorial to our past.

Mike Mcgonigle

Excellent experience. Would recommend it to everyone. Our tour guide Chris was very knowledgeable, friendly and had excellent "people skills". An interesting and enjoyable experience!

Jon Sund

An interesting place to visit, but I would not make a special trip to Dover for a visit.The property is well cared for with beautiful lawns and well maintained buildings. There is a lot to be learned about John Dickinson who many of us do not realize his impact on the creation of the United States. We were there in early August after many days of rain so to truly enjoy the grounds insect repellant was needed.

Ariele Boudreau

Ellen R

A wonderful step back in history, complete with period dressed interpreters who will guide the visitor through life on the plantation.

Gorgeous property. House was great to tour. Free

Liam Tahaney

Excellent historic location. Very convenient location. Definitely worth an hour. Some of the grounds are overgrown and delapadated but everything that's actually historic is super well preserved. They do a good job dealing with the uncomfortable bits of the history, and overall, it's just a great place to visit

JC Lee

Learned a lot about slavery and how plantations operated. And how people lived then.

Bob Hartman

Scenic area and a nice trail nearby. Staff were very good.
