Love that it’s self guided. Air conditioned. This is a good quick stop. There isn’t much to inside. But still fun!

Could not wait to see this house and it did not disappoint. So interesting to get a glimpse of how people lived back in the day. They sell yummy smelling "witch soap" in the museum store, too. :)
