The docent was delightful and informative. Being able to walk through the rooms instead of looking over a roped off area was a wonderful treat. My 11 year old son even enjoyed the tour and the history of the house and the former inhabitants.

This museum dates back to pre statehood, was left abandoned for years, then refurbished. Curator is very knowledgeable and informative, it's off the beaten path but well worth a stop and visit. Learn about the lady that built Lawton OK

This is a well worthwhile house to visit. Make sure you get a guided tour, as you will learn more about it and enjoy your visit even more. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained all about the house and its inhabitants.
