I've come to visit the historic houses with my children for field trips several times. Most of the staff is knowledgeable, the old houses are cool, and it's all easily within walking distance.

Delightful, informed tour from Casey. Carla and Casey accommodated our group gracefully. We followed it with an outstanding lunch at Cantwell's tavern, on site. We have made it an annual event!

This was the best field trip I've ever chaperoned! Five different learning stations, each with their own hands-on activity. The kids had such a blast! During lunch (and completely unprompted) they talked about everything they learned, swapped stories, and even argued about historical facts! Great time had for all: fourth graders, parent chaperones, teachers, and docents!

Thurs is a collection of 3 open homes dating from 1700 to 1772, the later being a National Historic Landmark. One is the homes was built and owned by one family since 1772 until it was purchaaed, restored and gifted along with the other two, to Winterthur. Closed in the early 2000's, it was relinquished to the donor and a trust and reopened as The Historic Homes of Odessa. The showpiece is The Corbit Sharp house, a 3 story Philadelphia mansion built in Delaware, but in my opinion the small frame home built between 1688 and 1720 is as charming. Built by someone of means, probably originally a 1 room up and down, the was an addition and center hall added by 1720. It features beautiful paneling and cupboard, and given the time it was built, it was in the middle of nowhere, the owner clearly had something to show off. I believe I know the builder of the first potion and perhaps the second, but cannot prove it. Tours Yes- Sun. Decorated as well as any during Christmas season. All are part of. Christmas in Odessa, the first Saturday of December along with other private homes in this killed town, originally a Dutch outpost in the New World.

We did a guided..? Tour the second to last weekend in December of 2017. Our tour guide brought us through 3 historic homes and told us that they were decorated for christmas which we were excited to see. We kept getting told to "come back in the spring/fall or any other time" to get a good tour of the homes. We were with about 10 other people confused as to why we weren't getting the "good" tour since we had paid $10 a person to be told "this is a historic room" or "there's a ton of information about this house" but you have to come back to find out. If we were on the (bring you through old homes but not give you any facts or be able to answer any questions accurately) tour they should better advertise that before paying. Very disappointing. Our tour guide was poorly trained on information as well. Loved to see the history but that is all we did, a quick glance through. There were rooms we were also told we could not go into because every other time of the year they give thorough tours but not the one we were on. Wish we knew we had to "come at a different time".

We were guided on Historic Odessa's "Holidays in Odessa" tour. It was a very informative tour through well-preserved and ornately-decorated historic houses of the area. The guide, Gail, was very polite and good with answering our questions. It's a nice short tour to take the family on if you have time before it's done for the winter.
