We were given a tour of the house and given a very interesting talk. We were there with our group of people from all over the state. They were a little confused at first when we talked with them about the events but got straightened out as time went on.

The Christmas Open House was beautifully done and the Lake County history very nicely told. The staff and volunteers are very dedicated people and the move into this facility has been very good for the Society.

What an remarkable place. The grounds are kept beautiful. The gift shop Is open, which helps support the Historical Center. The clothes and all the memorabilia is just exquisite. This is a wonderful family outing. So much to learn and we always find new facts. Great experience for yopung and old. Beautiful setting.

The layout of this museum is very nicely done; every room of this big house has a different, yet related theme. The History Center is well known for its collection of music boxes, but the Civil War, dollhouse and Mormon exhibits are also very interesting. (The Mormon exhibit presents a very different perspective as to why the believers left the Kirtland area versus the Morman Visitor Center in Kirtland.) As we were the only visitors at the time, the friendly secretary took us down to see the cells down in their basement (we learned about them at the Indian museum in Willoughby); they are a strong, vivid witness at to the building's history as a homeless shelter, which included the mentally unstable. She also played a few selections from a few of their music boxes. Overall I didn't expect such a comprehensive museum; it took about 45 minutes or so to get here from Willoughby. If you have young children, please keep an eye on them and don't let them roam about unattended--the dollhouses and music boxes are fragile. My only complaint: they have very limited hours, which can make it difficult creating a travel plan.
