The Audubon house has an interesting history, and both its interior and gardens are beautiful. Audubon' prints are masterpieces well worth long stares for all the detail they provide. I was stunned to learn the original prints were real to size, thinking what a work it must have been not only to do such beautifully detailed work but right to size as well. The house contains some furniture from the time period, including amazing patchwork bed covers and a pair of what must have been some of the very first roller skates, replete with wood and leather straps to fix below the knee (not much ankle flexibility I thought), but very interesting to see. Most interesting, besides the beautiful prints, was possibly the underlying story of art sponsorship at the time of Audubon who never owned this house but only spent a few months there, painting some pieces for his patron's house. We learned there are another 3 or 4 such "Audubon" houses in the US. A nice place to visit.
