The Butler-McCook House and Garden and Main Street History Center is a gem waiting to be discovered! The Butler and McCook families occupied the home for nearly two centuries, the last in residence until 1971! The house is full of art, antiques, artifacts and family memorabilia. The garden is an oasis of calm and beauty behind the house, complete with roses, a fountain, and grape arbor. The highlight, however, is the knowledgeable staff members who narrate the history center and house tours. Currently, the first floor of the house is “set” during Civil War times, depicting the family’s involvement in the war, both at home (preparation of care packages, knitting mittens, writing letters) and on the various fronts. Allow 1.5 hours minimum. Limited parking behind the house (enter from Prospect Street).
