The Society of the Cincinnati is a private patriotic group that educates the public about the Revolutionary War. Who knew? What’s key here is the chance to go inside the Renaissance Revival mansion (aka Anderson House) where it has its headquarters and check out the opulent interior. The gilded ballrooms, chandeliers, tapestries, sweeping staircases and marble pillars drop the jaw.

You can poke around a little bit on your own, but allow an hour for a docent-guided tour to see the majority of the rooms.
