“A must see in Milford!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

The "Lincoln Flag" is awesome...quite chilling to see the actual blood-stained flag that cradled Lincoln after he was shot! There is a lot of history in this lovely museum. Really enjoyed the camp room on the 2nd floor: letters from boys were a riot! The whole museum is very nicely arranged. Knowledgeable, pleasant guides are available to answer all your questions. Stop by!

“its ok”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The person told us about the story of the blood stained flag and spoke a little about the actors that had been in The play and used a decrative flag that was hanging nearby to put under president Lincolns head. We were permitted to roam the rest of the house at our leisure.

“Best Small Town Museum”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We went for the American flag that Lincoln's head was rested on after he was shot and we found a small local museum with great history. The girl at the reception desk was very sweet and knew her stuff. She shared the history of the house and the flag and then set us on our way. It was well worth the time and the small admission price ($5 per person).

“Local history pieces and Lincoln items.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Small admission fee. Very interesting museum with good local history and local indian tribes history also. The best piece was the american flag from Ford's Theatre that was used as a pillow for Licoln's head after he was shot. You can still see the blood stains.
