The introductory museum presentation states that Robert Ingersoll "is the most remarkable American most people never heard of" -- and it does an excellent job proving why he is well worth getting to know. Nicely designed museum exhibits reveal aspects of nineteenth-century American history that we don't learn in the history books. It's also a lovely little house.
