We were on a return trip, to IL. and decided to stop in Lewisburg for a little break. We saw a sign pointed the way to historical downtown and decided to check it out. Very glad we did. The town itself is really neat with all the antique malls (and I mean old antiques), but the visitor center was awesome.... More

The staff in the archives room are the best-especially Jim Talbert. He knows his way around the resources and is so patient with people and their stories.

This lovely home has been converted into a wonderful house museum that contains many unexpected finds! The staff is knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. I was very impressed that they have an elevator for guests who are unable to use the stairs. The furnishings are beautiful, and the changing exhibit room is very interesting. There is a nice gift shop, clean... More

Unusually good for this type of museum. My wife liked the old furniture, etc.; I liked the old pioneer artifacts; actually went there to see the big gun used at Ft. Donnelly. The guided tour was excellent, and there is a room off tour with files of historic material which may be viewed by request, if desired. Visited July 2012,... More

This one is an old manor house furnished in the upper class English tradition that you see in places like Williamsburg and Mount Vernon, although it is not quite that old. We often stop at museums of this type, and don't expect to get much out of it. this case, we had a personal tour from a very knowledgeable woman,... More
