We visited today, and really enjoyed the exhibits, but they desperately need more space and an elevator to make the second floor handicap accessible. Ideally, they could host all of the events for the annual Hall of Fame induction, but it was also fun running all over town today to see the various venues. We visited the library as well... More

historic building and story, great leaders, in James Dean's birth city, and also home to the awesome campus of Indiana Wesleyan University (worth a visit in its own right, especially the student center)

Watching the restoration progress was very interesting. The restored home has quilt exhibits on the 1st and 2nd floors. A history of Marie Webster. Plus changing exhibits throughout the year. If you are a quilt lover or love quilt history this is a must stop for you.

Quilts are displayed on the first and second floors of the home and a small gift shop is located downstairs. The displays change quarterly- current exhibit is red and green appliqué quilts... More

A loving restored home of featured well known quilter. Walls display various quilts from years past to present by many different quilters. Very interesting if you are into the history and quality of quilting. Stairs take you to the second floor but there is an elevator if needed. Cost is $4 to enter.(seems a little high but think of it... More

I fell across this delightful place almost by accident - it's on the AAA trip tik attractions list or I'd never have noticed it. This little museum is in an early 1900s house, fully and beautifully restored, once owned by Maria Webster and her husband. There are some beautiful quilts on exhibit, hall of fame members' contributions, and the docent... More
