Great experience. $5 worth the 45minute tour. Lots to learn but the location (house) is amazing! Most of the antiques are ordinal from the late 1800s! Surprise, good experience worth a look

One of the absolute best restored old houses in the 'Peg. You can just imagine yourself in it back in the day. A great visit at Christmas as well.

Hi there, No one knows definitively, but it might have been the same makers who did the glass at a few of the churches around town. The stained glass depicts a bird flying over flowering Irises. Thanks for your question... More
