In 2010-2011, the Goodman-LeGrand House underwent a major exterior renovations project, which brought the exterior paint and shingled mansard roof back to its original colors from the 1880 remodel.

Today, the home is still furnished with the original belongings of the Goodman-LeGrand family, some of which are older than the house itself as they date back to the early 1800's. These include antique hand-carved furniture and musical instruments, a grandfather clock, fine silver and crystal, hand-painted Limoges china, original clothing, medical books dating back to the early 1800's, Civil War-era surgical tools and medical cases, original paintings and photographs and many other rare and interesting items.

The well manicured lawn of Goodman-LeGrand Gardens (aka LeGrand Park) covers almost an entire city block. There are many large shade trees and flowering shrubs include azaleas and roses. Benches provide visitors a place to rest and enjoy the setting.
