We stopped at this house and expected a small tour with a few items but were pleasantly surprised. There are two large floors with great items to be seen. Ann, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the local history. Anyone visiting or driving by Alexandria must see this museum. Their is a small cost of $10 but worth every dollar.

HIDDEN GEM ALERT!!! Out of town visitors should put this on their list! The extremely friendly staff gives wonderful guided tours for next to nothing, making this a great stop for travelers on a budget or with a family. The displays are interactive and changed frequently. Definitely not some boring, dusty old museum! Lots to see and learn for kids and adults alike. Would be a fun place for couples to visit as well. Impressive research and genealogy resources available.
