The next stop was the Holmes-Hendrickson House which was a really interesting combination of English and Dutch style architecture. For being such an unassuming house from the street, it had a LOT of bedrooms and housed 13 people + several slaves back in its heyday. My tour guide was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable on the subject of the house. There were also a lot of really neat period pieces in the house, including the looking glass, of which I was not familiar.
