The collection they have of the items that were donated by the Bush family is very interesting. The fisher house is nicely kept and has many original items. The tour is a bit long and the docent we had was sweet, but very young and spoke so fast that we had trouble understanding him at times. I would recommend stopping in because of the Bush collection, however $10 per person was a bit steep for the value.

Our recent visit to this museum really exceeded my expectations. The museum itself is a house from the mid 1800's. It belonged to one of the richest families in town at the time. The house belonged in the family until the 1980's and then was left to the historical society. The tours are lead by very knowledgeable volunteers and the groups are small, so you have plenty of time to look around and ask questions. On the day we went, we were the only ones on the tour, so it felt like a private tour. The house and all of its furnishings are all kept as it was in the 1850's. There is one room in the house that is dedicated to the former president Bush and his families connection to the area. That alone was worth the price, but the house and it's history is really interesting.
