My favorite of the museums. It was once stagecoach stop then became a winery and private home. Lots of old carriages and wagons to see include a still function horse drawn hearse.

The exhibits inside the home are interesting. There are often activities for all ages. I suggest calling ahead or looking on line if you can.

This was definitely worth visiting. They have a guide that walks you through the house and explains all of the history there. It really makes it come alive.
