  • Beautiful detail! Interesting history and a great learning experience. Christmas and Halloween decor and tours available!
  • What a great place to get a better understanding of living in the past. Especially when electricity was something more of a novelty than an everyday part of life. There's a great hands on experience in the basement, especially for children. Highly recommend this.
  • Beautiful, not too miss Historic House Museum. Christmas is a special time to visit. Each room is it's own magic of Christmas. It's electrical history is a National treasure.
  • History coming alive here, great your guide. Very interesting !
  • Nicely restored house. The docent was excellent. It was not a mansion but a nice house. Especially interesting is the fact it was the first house light by an Edison style hydroelectric dynamo. They have some original wiring and light fixtures and educational displays in the basement. A nice way to spend an hour and a half.
