Myself and 2 girlfriends took the Quaker Hill ghost tour offered at the Museum at the Friends Home. So much fun. I have lived in Waynesville most of my life and had no clue this was there! It was a fun night out and very affordable! The tour guide, Walt (I think), was so cute and fun!! He gave us a lot of history of the small town. I would absolutely recommend doing one of their offered tours!

The Museum at the Friends Home surprised us with its rich history and back story. We went with a group and didn't know much about the museum before we arrived. The docents were friendly and knowledgeable. Anyone working through their genealogy in southwestern Ohio will come across historical tidbits that will bring more understanding of life during the turn of the century.

An interesting building and museum, although not fully curated yet. Lacks some focus and overarching theme. Staff were friendly. Needs some effort to narrow their focus and enhance the explanation of the Friends history and their impact overall.

Not only does the Museum at the Friends Home preserve a look into the Villages history and the involvement of the Quakers in the area. The museum used to serve as a nursing home at one time. I love the memory of taking my children there during Christmas to sing for the residents. Charming!

This is a great experience for learning about how people lived in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Lots of rooms that are focused on certain aspects of the Quaker experience.
