The highlight piece is the Lincoln flag, which was used to cushion the head of the dying assassinated President. The story of how it got to Milford is worth the price of admission. There are many other exhibits, including lots of local information about old summer camps, Pocono wild animals, a great tribute to the US Marines, vintage women's clothing,... More

Loved this museum. Still don't understand why it houses one of the flags used to wrap President Lincoln the night of his assassination, but it does and it has a lot more too! Very interesting displays.

It;s a wonderful old home to look inside and there are many items to tell the story of the family that use to live there.n There was a very popular TV show thatdid an episode of an apparent haunting on site however no ghosts visited us that day.

This small museum has a quaintness that is a bit odd. The main attraction is the flag used to drape the blood soaked head of Lincoln after he was shot at Ford's Theatre. That alone is so very haunting . This museum is more of a community( volunteer) effort than a grand velvet rope style museum. The actual stage coach... More

The highlight for everyone is the Lincoln Flag from Fords Theatre. The exhibits range from indian artifacts, civil war relics to old fishing equipment.

Looked like just an old house on a busy road, turned out to be haunted by a not so welcoming individual - it will remain a well kept secret.

We stopped by while in town for the day and really enjoyed our visit. The woman at the front table was very nice and informative about the house and the history of objects in the house. We enjoyed the story of the the Lincoln Flag and the actress shoes with adjustable heels in the case. The woodwork of the house... More

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and was greeted by a very friendly dog. The lady and gentleman at the museum seemed very knowledgeable about the history of the artifacts in the museum and the building itself. Housing a steel beam from the Twin Towers and the Lincoln room with a flag from the Ford theatre bearing blood stains... More

We were greeted by Ken as we walked in, he was very friendly, and knew everything about this place. The Lincoln flag and the story of how it ended up in Milford, PA is a good one, but I won't ruin it for you. Stop in and see for your self. This is a self guided tour but we were... More
