This museum has a lot of great pieces from history. I can think of one item in particular is the American flag that President Lincoln was wrapped in after he was shot at the theater that fatal night. On Dec 18, 2015 at 5pm the museum will be having their annual open house free to the public. This year Flaming... More

Went to see the blood soaked Lincoln flag - which was placed under the President's head after being shot. I learned a lot - beautiful building. Also has an American flag with 31 stars on display

I love it here, a wealth of information about a very historic town! Plus the Lincoln flag in a neo Greco Roman house called the Columns. Friendly staff and an interesting book store. Genealogy research done here too.

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.
