Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review! We take pride in our museum and the history that we tell. Small museums are indeed unique and vital to telling stories of local import and their global ties. Thank you for visiting!

Don't overlook this quaint home in a busy section of town. Our docent was very interesting and the home holds many beautiful details. Be sure to see the fascinating shades in the daughter's bedroom that are printed with the "old" view across the street!
