The Atwood House is much more than a historic home museum. A very knowledgable staff and docents provide visitors with an impressive collection of art, furnishings and history of this region. Well organized with exhibits from the Revolution through the Civil War and World War I and II. A special treat to view the historic and contemporary panoramic photos of this very attractive area. Highly recommended for an enjoyable and educational visit.

The volunteer staff were exceptional; great tour, very educational; very interesting and informative. I was surprised at the extent of the exhibits in what I thought was a small museum. Worth the visit!!!!

We stopped there on a whim. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and variety of the museum. Excellent docents, and the kids all enjoyed themselves from age 7-14.

Loved our tour! Knowledgeable and friendly staff. We should have allowed more time. They close at 4:00 and we got there a little after 2:30. Really enjoyed learning about Chatham’s history.
