Whilst visiting the very impressive Institute and Grounds, don't miss the Museum. It is easily missed, sited as it is in the basement of the Chapel, but make the effort. There you will find a history of the Institute including the Civil War and stories of notable alumni who attended the Institute. But the prize must go to the comprehensive collection of antique firearms put together by Henry Stewart which chart the search for a succesful revolving cylinder gun.
