Really interesting history, but even better if you can catch a tour. The folk who tell the history really know their stuff. Call ahead see when the tours are running, generally spring and fall. Perfect for scouts, school groups, civic groups, old or young.

I visited this place more than one time. I love the way the museum truly reflects what life was like during "That time."

When I came by on a Saturday between 10-2 when it was supposed to be open, I found out that the site was under renovation. However, I read the plaque outside (it's really called the Quakerton House, named after the community from which it was moved), and walked all around the outside. I'm looking forward to it's re-opening in a couple months.

Love how they moved these old houses to downtown, the history is amazing but they could add more furniture.
