“Walking in Westfield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

Westfield is a very walkable community. We strolled the residential streets holding hands. The Museum was a nice little stop along the way

“The McClurg Museum is the oldest house in Western New York.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

The museum is a treasure trove of american and US history. They have the original deed for the property purchased from the Hudson Bay Co. They have artifacts about the underground railroad and the civil war. There also are documents surrounding Abraham Lincoln's visit to Westfield on his way to assume the presidency in Washington. He stopped to meet the young girl who had suggested that he grow a beard. Across the street from the McClurg are statues commerating the meeting between Lincoln and the little girl.

“Kind of the basis for discovering Westfield, NY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

The Museum is very nice and has a lot of good stuff about the Westfield area and the times. But the real attraction is the village itself. Great small town. Lots of history. Even the library is cool! Main St USA. Well preserved town with many Victorian homes. Home of the original Welches Grape Juice. Antiquing is fun here. Walking on sidewalks on tree lined streets is wonderful.
