“American History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

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, family reunion.
Photos not encouraged.
Book and Gift shop available.

This museum was really neat. The guided tour was very informative and I learned a lot of new stuff about the area while looking and historical items.

“Unusually well done for this type”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

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, and as we know a few things ourselves, it turned out to be a mutual exploration of a way of life that was instrumental in this nation's history. Strongly recommended.
