When you enter, there’s an exhibit on the first floor with historical fire fighting displays. Very well done. I was pleasantly surprised at how they have upkept the entire house through the years.

You should go here for great history or tea party. The host was so gracious and kind to us. The fire fighters museum is a bonus.
