“Very nice house built in 1812”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

The house has significance for the local history. There are many things in the house from the 1800's and early 1900's. There are many old pieces to look at.

“History up-close”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

Wonderful displays of local and NY history from 1830s to 1930s. Well-kept, highly accessible rooms representative of different eras in Le Roy history including that of the first women's university in the United States to graduate students. Great for all ages.

“Excellent Historic House With Lots of Hands-On Activities for the Kids!”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

The main level of this home may strike you as the previous reviewer mentioned, "A Typical Historic Home" with lots of period artifacts abounding throughout.

However, if you are a parent of young children, you will immediately realize this is NOT just a stuffy ol' hands-off historic home. There are actually a variety of hands-on activities to be found throughout each of the rooms. This engaged my children, ages 10, 6, and 2, for quite a while. They were immensely intrigued with the different things they could do.

We actually spent almost two hours in the kitchen area downstairs. They use this area for educational activities and field trips, as well as real-live cooking demonstrations. We were the only people in the house that day, so none of these special events were occurring, but the kids had an absolute blast dressing in the costumes and using the plastic food to pretend to cook and prepare meals. There were lots of pottery displays, as well as more hands-on artifacts such as butter churns and workers, and so much more...

The visit to this house was included with admission into the Jello Museum. We hit up both on our way to the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, and we are VERY glad we did!

“Typical Historic Home”
Reviewed May 2, 2010

Tour the home next door to the Jell-o Gallery. Guide was very engaging. Interesting 1930's kitchen.
